PAN AND THE PEASANT (FINISHED)

Thank you Moonstrum for always such illustrating clarifications. He wrote this:

"Well, what i read is that, pan is a god -from which the word "panic" is derived, albeit i doubt all of the fauns are god pan, and indeed one of the main shapes that inspired the creature the church needs for the personification of its enemy.it's somehow eerie, intriguing, fascinating .. the perfect lover!"

I indeed, wanted of course reflect the concept of "leisure" in both mythic and "religious" ways: the peasant is like making an offering to nature (or western god's nature) contributing to the fertility of the harvest, and that harvest is so abundant and kinda sumptuous that Pan is coming to "give him a break", in fact, like a "temptation" to leave his seeding work and offer his "extra-seed" to Pan. And in the process of creation theory (although I'm not a believer), god had a "break" in his 7th day (number associated with the devil), so "he" in a fact created the "spare time", the leisure, so the devil is god himself in his spare time.
