These two statues were found in the Sculptor's Workshop at Aphrodisias.  They look very similar (although they are not exactly the same) but they depict a similar theme: A Satyr with baby Dionysus—the god of merriment and wine.  Evidently you could purchase such a statue just the right size for your garden or your house!

They date to the late second or early third century AD.
