The Flying Mercury Statue
Hermes by Giovanni da Bologna (1529-1608)
The messenger of the gods and patron of commerce and trading, winged Mercury speeds through the skies carrying the caduceus that symbolizes both immunity during war and the practice of medicine. Bologna, working in the Medici court in Florence in 1580, composed his subject in the figura serpentine that masterfully guides the eye across our quality designer resin sculpt to fully admire each detail, finished here in a rich faux bronze.

The Flying Mercury Statue is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this gift I had one of these statues years ago in England and it became damaged in my move to the US. Hermes (Mercury) is the insignia for the Royal Engineers (Royal Corps of Signals) and this had a significance to me. A lovely piece, in every way as good as the last. I will be VERY careful to wrap him well when I return home ... I dont want any more fingers falling off.
