Walter Crane's illustration of the fable of "The Satyr and the Peasant" from Baby's Own Aesop (London, 1887)
A satyr is a creature from Greek mythology. They are usually depicted with the upper half of a human and the legs of a goat, and horns on their heads. Satyrs were usually companions of Dionysus and Pan. They are often shown in art chasing after nymphs and were associated with nature and fertility.
