Friedrich Hörnlein (1873-1945) studied sculpture and painting at the Academy in Dresden. Like Bosselt, he favoured traditional techniques, engraving directly on metal and casting medals. Not only his techniques, but also his subjects followed the tradition of Antiquity and the Renaissance. This one-sided cast medal depicts the mask of a satyr with outstretched tongue and goatee.
