Description

Large mythological bronze representing Mercury or Hermes, the messenger of the gods. He is wearing his winged, round petasos hat and carrying a caduceus in his left hand. The wings on his ankles enable him to move quickly and are one of his distinctive symbols. Mercury, represented here as a young, athletic man, is being propulsed into the air by a burst of wind represented as a young face blowing to help Mercury rise. In his upward momentum, he is raising his right arm and pointing to the heavens, the source of divine knowledge. The bronze rests on a marble base,

Signed "Le Santis" on an oval base.
