Grotesque with Satyr[1] is the informal title of a ceiling fresco detail by Giovanni Butteri and Alessandro Allori, in bay 25 of the eastern wing of the Uffizi. A satyr is shooting an arrow in the culus of an old man. It is reminiscent of A demon firing an arrow into the buttocks of a merman[2] and a scene or publicity shot from Arabian Nights.
