The Apollo faun is a design dating from 1799 and coming from the Duserre et Cie factory. Papier Français restores it in the most beautiful way to breathe a mythological wind into every interior. Indeed, on two gold-coloured medallions, the dispute between Apollo and Pan is represented. This elegant representation rests on a grid of ivy and a marbled background.
"Pan had the audacity to challenge Apollo... A merciless struggle ensued, not without reason. With weapons in hand, one playing the flute, the other the lyre, they competed in skill and multiplied the assaults. King Midas, the judge for the occasion, foolishly designated Pan as the winner of this fight from which nothing good could come. Apollo, vexed, turned King Midas' ears into donkey ears and, furious, returned to Olympus."
