I have a thing for satyrs. It's usually nymphs and bacchante's that are the focus, but there's something so deliciously shameless about satyrs/fauns

To emphasize that humans were superior with their larger brains to beasts by not giving in to base desires. Essentially not thinking with your dick.

they were supposed to be anatomically correct representations of the human body to be used as reference to science and arts and therefore couldnt be seen as objects of desire by people, thats why peen were small

This starts it off:
>>1829632

Large dicks were associated with men who had no self control, who behaved like beasts rather than men. They were considered/depicted as barbarians. A small dick emphasized that it was an upstanding, respectable man who could control his sexual urges and valued knowledge and thinking over everything else.

So art of gods, heroes, social and political figures, etc was often done with the penis drawn or carved small (and smaller than real life for real men). While art of foreign invaders/barbarians, or creatures like satyrs, are done with absurdly large dicks (sometimes several feet long).

So, apparently some church somewhere commissioned a statue of Satan, but thought it was too sexy, so they commissioned his brother to make another, but it turned out even sexier.

Pic related, I don't know which one is supposed to be which; they both look about equally attractive to me.

Source?

In Roman Sex by John Clarke, his studies suggest that depictions of large penises were rampant throughout roman 'civilized' culture. Absurdly sized members were put on buildings, tiles on the roads--people even had small statues of them in their homes. This was done to ward off bad omens and evil spirits.

Not necessarily disagreeing--just curious.

>>1836296
While I agree it could have been more clear that it was just about the Greek approach to art, I think it's still valid given that most of the ancient art being shared in here is Greek.

shit Im an idiot I meant the Golden Ass, sorry!

>"[Psykhe (Psyche), despairing at having lost the love of Eros (Cupid), thought to cast herself into a river :] The rustic god Pan chanced to be sitting at that moment on the brow of the stream, holding the mountain deity Echo in his arms, and teaching her to repeat after him all kinds of songs. Close by the bank nanny-goats were sporting as they grazed and cropped the river-foliage here and there. The goat-shaped god was well aware of the calamity that had befallen Psyche. He called her gently to him, lovesick and weary as she was, and soothed her with these consoling words. ‘You are an elegant girl, and I am a rustic herdsman, but my advanced years give me the benefit of considerable experience. If my hazard is correct--sages actually call such guesswork divine insight--I infer from your stumbling and frequently wandering steps, from your excessively pale complexion and continual sighs, and not least from your mournful gaze, that you are suffering grievous love-pains. On that account you must hearken to me: do not seek gain to destroy yourself by throwing yourself headlong or by seeking any other means of death. Cease your sorrowing, lay aside your sadness, and instead direct prayers of adoration to Cupidos (Cupid) [Eros], greatest of gods, and by your caressing attentions win the favour of that wanton and extravagant youth.’
Psyche made no reply to this advice from the shepherd-god. She merely paid reverential homage to his divine person, and proceeded on her way."
