Dia. of base is 7" . Hermes, the Greek God was originally sculptured by Praxiteles from the full figure sculpture of Hermes holding the infant Dionysus. The statue of Hermes was found in the ruins of the temple of Hera at Olympia, the original site of the Olympic games. Hermes was one of the first Olympians. He was the god of trade and roads, merchants and thieves. The Greek God Hermes is usually depicted as a young man wearing winged sandals, a wide-brimmed, often winged, hat or helmet, and carrying a heralds staff called a Caduceus. The Caduceus is a winged central rod, representing a phallus, with two serpents wrapped around it, signifying the creative energy and magical balance between the masculine and feminine. This symbol is still with us today as the universal emblem of medicine. These sculptures are imported from Italy.
