Stunning 19th.c. bronze sculpture of Hermes. Also known as Mercury, the messenger of the gods, guide of the dead and protector of merchants, shepherds, gamblers, liars, and thieves. Set on a marble base and depicted floating on a column of air coming from the mouth of Zephyr, whilst holding the caduceus or kerykeion, a Greek herald’s staff taking the form of a scepter entwined by two serpents in the form of a double helix and surmounted by wings. Hermes wears his usual petasus (round hat) and features wings to both hat and feet.
