This piece was placed next to "Pan's Octave" in Tuscany. Syrinx was a nymph and a follower of Artemis, the Greek God of Solitude. She was pursued by Pan, the God of Nature, and ran to the river seeking assistance from the water nymphs. In return, she was turned into a hollow water reed. Pan then picked the reed and made it into a flute which he played forever. The reed made a haunting sound when the God's frustrated breath blew across them. This piece is similar to Pan's Octave and was thus placed in close proximity. The 2 pieces together represent the intertwining of myth and design.
