Pan and Syrinx Picture

Syrinx was once the most beautiful and purest of all the river nymphs. One day the wild Greek god Pan saw Syrinx dancing through the forest. So taken by her beauty, he chased after her lustfully along the riverside. But syrinx did not want to be loved. She prayed to the river god to save her. Just when pan had reached out to embrace her, he found himself holding the long slender reeds that grow by the river. To save Syrinx's purity the river god had turned her into the water reeds. Pan was overtaken by sorrow. He cut the long reeds and fastened them into a pipe which he named Syrinx, and played sweet but sad songs to remind him of her.

I hope you enjoy it anyways!
