From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Grotesque with Satyr is the informal title of a ceiling fresco detail by Giovanni Butteri and Alessandro Allori, in Vasari Corridor 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 and scene or publicity shot from Arabian Nights.
