Roman Mythology Grand Tour Mercury Bronze Statue Figurine Marble Base Home Decor
Total Dimensions: Height 19'' x Width 8'' Approximate Weight: 25 LBS Original Reproduction: ReproductionThis is a bronze rendition of Roman mythological god Mercury. Mercury is seen seated among the billows of clouds hurriedly preparing himself for his celestial duty. The beholder witnesses him tying his divine gear to complete his charge of delivering messages from the gods, in swift flights, to and fro from earth and to the heavens. He wears the typical talaria which are winged sandals, made by the god Haphaestus, made of imperishable gold in which allows the god to fly as prompt as any bird. A petasos crowns his head which is a sun hat of Thessalian origin worn by the ancient Greeks. As a winged hat, it became the symbol of Mercury or his Greek correlative god, Hermes. Mercury is also considered the god of commerce, cunning, and invention. He was cast using the ancient method of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina finish for perpetuation. The sculpture is mounted upon a black marble base with the artist Giambologna`s signature.
Great service and a great product.
Very good piece of art
What a sculpture it looks like the Stag is in my house. I love it.
As far as weight, I meant to say, "NOT debilitatingly so"
I absolutely love this piece, it sits on display prominently in my home. It's quality is top notch, and ofcourse very heavy as it's bronze. But debilitating so. Packaging as always couldn't have been better. Every piece I've ever purchased from bronzhaus has always been well packaged and high quality.
Thank you to the artist aswell. I own several of their pieces.
I’m very pleased with details
Pose and quality
This is a beautiful work of art. I did have a problem, however. The sculpture was received upside down because no marking on the box to keep any side up. Three of the wings of the eagle on the left side facing were bent inward and out of alignment with the rest of the wings. I had to straighten them using blocks and a very large c-clamp to move the wings without cracking. I didn't refuse the delivery because it wasn't the carrier's fault that it was received in this condition. The packaging is otherwise great to try to protect the sculpture. Overall, I'm pleased it arrived in one piece and looks great after repair!
I just received the Indian Eagle sculpture...it is breathtaking. The detail and elegance of the piece surpasses my expectation. I hope to purchase the companion piece in the very near future.
An absolutely beautiful piece of art that truly makes me happy! As a retired Colonel in the USAF, the Eagle is a symbol of my service, and having this one just feels right - great work, great packaging, and fast shipment.
I like it alot, I wish you had a larger version of this.
It's a very nice dragon sculpture. Got it for my daughter's birthday. I think she'll love it.
Love this beautiful...and beautifully made sculpture
Beautifully made (as I have come to expect from Bronzhaus), regal king of the Underworld.
Smooth transaction, excellent piece of art. Highly recommended seller. Perfect packing which allows that the sculptures arrive in perfect conditions. Have bought many pieces from them and always very satisfied.
This is the second statue I purchased. Bopth came promptly and the detail is great.
What material are your sculptures made out of?
All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!
What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?
Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold. Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood. Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.
Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.
Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.
