Description
Mercury (Hermes) acted as messenger of the gods and a deity of wealth, trade and travelers. He assisted many gods by using his winged sandals named "talaria" which he wears in this 16th sculpture by Giovanni da Bologna (Giambologna) now in the National Museum, Florence. In his hand he holds his famous symbol, the caduceus, which later became a symbol for medicine and alchemy.

Flying Mercury Statue by Giovanni da Bologna is made from resin with bronze finish and measures 14.5"H x 4.5"W x 9.5"D.

About Hermes: Hermes was the son of Zeus and nymph Maia, Altas' daughter. Hermes was the god of shepherds, merchants, literature, and thieves. He was also the messenger of the gods and conductor of souls to the underworld. He was the cleverest out of all the Olympian gods; He invented the lyre, the popes, the musical scale, astronomy, weights, measures, and the care of olive trees.
