Large scale, well weathered reconstituted stone statue of Actaeon.

Actaeon
 was a famous  hero  in Greek mythology. He was the son of  Aristaeus , a herdsman, and  Autonoe , and resided in the region of Boeotia. He was the pupil of the  centaur   Chiron . He somehow caused the wrath of goddess  Artemis , eventually leading to his death.
Actaeon  accidentally saw  Artemis  naked, while she was bathing in the woods; amazed at her beauty, he was spotted by the goddess, who told him not to speak again or he would change into a deer. Upon hearing his hunting dogs, however,  Actaeon  called them and immediately transformed into a deer. So, he started running into the woods, but was chased and killed by his own dogs.
