The Roman god Mercury, known as Hermes in Greek mythology, is the messenger god between the Olympian gods and mortals. Son of Jupiter and Maia, Mercury personifies eloquence and cunning, protector of travelers, and patron of merchants. A psychopomp god, he guided the souls of the deceased on their journey to the afterlife.
Hermes – Mercury is often represented as a young figure with wings on his heels or sandals, wearing a wide-brimmed hat and holding the caduceus in one hand—a staff with two intertwined serpents symbolizing the harmony of opposites and duality, as one who travels between two worlds, the divine and the earthly.
This multifaceted god was invoked by those seeking protection in their travels and business. His agile and versatile energy is reflected in the wings on his feet or boots, representing the swiftness of the wind, which conveys the messages of the gods rapidly throughout the cosmos. Hermes stands as the intermediary god between the two worlds, bridging the gap between gods and mortals.
Decorating with reproductions of sculptures of mythological characters, gods, and heroes adds elegance and grandeur to our favorite spaces, in the living room, library, or office, especially standing out on a column or pedestal. Through the choice of a specific god, such as this bust of Hermes, we can express not only our aesthetic tastes and interests but also our personal values or aspirations related to its symbolic meaning.
