Aglaia and Faun is an outstanding Hildegard Gunzel Artist Proof for a limited edition of 10 worldwide. The artist drew her inspiration for this doll art masterpiece from ancient mythology. Both dolls from this set are made of wax over porcelain with other fine natural materials. The overall size of this set is approximately 39 inches.

Aglaia is a water nympth, and her companion, Silen, is a faun. Aglaia, meaning "Brightness" or "Splendor", was the youngest and most beautiful of the three Graces or Charites in Greek mythology, daughters of Zeus and the Sea Nymph Euphrosyne. The three daughters are iconically depicted as three fully draped women holding hands and dancing ceremoniously. With her sisters, Aglaia presided over banquets, dance, social enjoyment and the elegant arts. Faun, or Pan, is the half goat half human of Greek and Roman mythology, a minor deity of fields and wild woodlands. He is also the companion of the nymphs, loves dancing and is adept at playing the flute.

"The sounds of Little Silen's pipe float clearly through the shimmering air. But suddenly there is another sound in the silence. Aglaia pricks up her ears and rises her hand warningly. 'Hush! Don't play so loudly, Pan! Don't you hear the song the children sing? Be quiet and don't let them know where we are, otherwise they may be frightened by you!'"
