Sculpted vase with Pan (?)

Sculpted vase, November 11, 2015

Big sculpted vase with a head of Pan (?) on it. According to this site here, Pan was the god of the wild and hunting, so he might be mad about being on a vase in a garden … he’s a domesticated Pan, I guess! There’s a sculpture of Pan that’s a little like this one in a painting by Giambattista Tiepolo called “La muerte de Jacinto” (see it here). On another topic: are those oranges growing on the tree behind the vase? I didn’t notice them when I gook the picture!
