The goat is the fourth in the series of the Delacorte clock animals. He's the one animal with cultural references. Playing a double-horned aulos, he refers back to Greece. Though all goat, he reminds me of the half-man half-goat satyr, the mischievous woodland creature of Greek myth. Though artists in the Renaissance and points forward have made the goat a devilish or witchy character, the bearded, dancing Delacorte goat is playful, making music in a joyous menagerie.
