About the Image

Bronze Satyr in the Fountain of Neptune of Florence by Melany Sarafis

Made by Bartolomeo Ammannati (Michelangelo's student) and some assistants (like Giambologna) around 1563. The Fountain of Neptune was commissioned for the wedding of Francesco I de Medici. Neptune stands on a high pedestal in the middle of the fountain, surrounded by mythical figures like Scylla, Charybdis and Satyrs. Many Florentines didn't appreciate the fountain (including Michelangelo, who called it a waste of marble), and it became known as "Il Biancone" (the white giant). I was fascinated by the bronze cast satyrs like this one, that surround the figure of Neptune. I agree with Michelangelo, "what a beautiful piece of marble you've ruined."

About the Artist - Melany Sarafis

Melany Sarafis

Melany Sarafis served her country for 24 years and recently retired from the USAF as a First Sergeant. She thinks it's really stupid when photographers refer to themselves in the 3rd person on their biographies. I needed to do something "low speed" after a successful but stressful military career. I've have been an avid photographer for a few years and enjoy this "internal" creative process. I am now a full time student at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Tx, pursuing a BFA in Studio Arts with an emphasis in Photography and Jewelry/Metalsmith Work. I'm happiest when I'm outdoors with nature, and I love rural decay and exploring ghost towns. I feel my spirit soar when I'm outside! After taking an Art History course...
