This is not an original author's interpretation by the Ancien models. Conceptual and as a symbolic message, this Riton fully fits into the picture of the ancient beliefs, because Centaur is a symbol of fertility as well as all of the known animals-bases. In Greek mythology, however, it has a bit demonic nature, likely has not been used as basis for creating Rythons. In the author's reading of the ancient art, however, such a barrier does not exist.
