This is a Bronze replica of Giovanni Bolognas Hermes the Flying Mercury. It depicts Hermes standing on a column of air coming from the mouth of Zephyr, creating an illusion of floating. Many people believe that the modern medical symbol, a staff with two coiled nukes. It is derived from the staff of Asclepius but that is incorrect. That modern symbol is derived from the caduceus magical wand of Hermes, a short stick or staff with two snakes coiled around it. The reason for this may be due to Hermes link with alchemy alchemists were, at one time, referred to as the Sons of Hermes and alchemy blended in with early medical practice. He is caught in racing upwards in a winged fury to deliver his message to the gods. The emphasis on the refined surface and cool elegance and beauty implicate Bolognas Mannerist style.
This rendition was cast using the age-old technique of lost wax casting and finished with a brown patina stain and stands upon a marble base.
