This captivating sculpture brings to life the iconic Greek God, Hermes, seamlessly blending the intricate nuances of Greek and Roman mythology. In the Roman pantheon, Hermes finds his counterpart in the deity Mercury, a figure synonymous with commerce, wealth, and communication. With its meticulous detailing, the statue vividly portrays Hermes as the swift messenger of the gods, adorned with his distinctive winged sandals that grant him the power to traverse between the mortal and divine realms. As a multifaceted Olympian God, Hermes holds a diverse array of attributes. Beyond his role as a messenger, he is the revered patron of boundaries, shepherds, orators, athletes, and more. His symbols, such as the tortoise, cock, and caduceus, symbolize his multifarious domain and influence. Notably, Hermes' legacy extends to the invention of fire, drawing a parallel with the Titan Prometheus, showcasing his prowess in shaping the world and bestowing knowledge upon humanity. This remarkable statue stands as a testament to Cellini's mastery, cast in high-quality lost wax bronze and elegantly resting upon a black marble base. The artist's attention to detail is evident in every curve and contour, capturing the essence of Hermes' dynamic character. The statue is a captivating embodiment of ancient mythology and artistry, a true treasure for collectors and enthusiasts alike. It bears the signature "B. Cellini," further reaffirming its quality and artistic significance.
