Description "Goatman Pottery," 2014, from the portfolio "Drawn from the McClung Museum," lithograph by Beauvais Lyons. Edition: 1/30.

Designed in response to McClung Museum object: 1936.4.1657, glazed earthenware pitcher of man-goat.

Artist statement: I selected this unusual earthenware pitcher because of its "goat-man" subject. In addition, the form is so exaggerated, with an absolutely crazy handle, and it is hard for me to imagine anyone ever using this object, except on the rare occasion that one needed to serve a glass of wine to a satyr. Artifacts tell stories, and I am always interested in imagining a larger context or history for this object. Reflecting the forms and colors of the original pitcher, my print presents a seal for an imaginary late 19th century pottery located not in Italy, but Rome, Georgia.
