These whimsical fauns' heads shed light on Picasso's subtle sense of humor and charm. Two curious fauns gaze out at us from this marvelous pitcher, their expressions a mixture of surprise and joy. Picasso adds delightful touches such as the dots along the top of the pitcher and the handle and the leaf-like figure on the side that divides the two faces.
