Hermes Fastening his Sandal Bonded Marble Statue
c. 320 BCE by School of Lysippos (4th century B.C.), Louvre, Paris

This Roman statue of a resting athlete, pays homage to a lost Greek bronze original. Replicated by many famed sculptors through the ages and said to represent various gods from Jason to Mercury to Hermes although this classical sculpture has none of the god's attributes. Found in 1769 at Hadrian's Villa at Tivoli near Rome, it is sometimes referred to as the Lansdowne Sandal Binder after the English aristocrat who owned it in the eighteenth century. One of the most respected masterpieces in the canon of antiquity, this almost foot-tall sculpture studies the idealized male form in a museum-quality composition artistically cast in natural bonded marble.

Hermes the messenger of God Having Hermes in my collection of statuary has been delightful. The quality and detail of this piece of bonded marble figurine is outstanding. I have him along with the others in my study and I cherish this piece very much. Besides the beauty of Hermes, he draws me because what he represents. He is the great messenger of the gods and a guide to the Underworld. Hermes was born on Mount Kyllini in Arcadia. An Olympian god, he is also the patron of boundaries and of the travelers who cross them. You can find more about him briefly in the Wikipedia. December 17, 2011
