Bronze Mercury

Mercury (Hermes in Greek Mythology), was one of the twelve gods of the Olympus. Mercury is a recurring actor in mythological themes, but mostly as a supporting character; as messenger of the gods or as a travel guide for mortals.
Mercury is generally depicted as a graceful athletic youth. His attributes are the wings to his ankles, the Petasus – winged hat – and the Caduceus – a winged staff with to intertwining snakes wrapped around it ( here missing ). The Talaria and Petasus enable Mercury to travel fast, the Caduceus induces sleep. The base of this statue is the head of Aeolus, the god of favorable winds.
Fine chiseling and original patina .
