Description
Mercury (the Greek Hermes), messenger of the gods, was the patron deity of travelers, gamblers, tricksters and businessmen. In this magnificent small statue, he is shown nude, wearing the winged hat which allowed him to travel swiftly and carrying a money sack, a symbol of promised prosperity. In our world--as in the Classical one--this seems the ideal work of art for someone who charts a swift and successful course through life. - (FZ.023)
