Hermes, the great messenger of Greek mythology, is a god who is spoken of in a great many legends and myths. Known for the winged sandals that helped him fly, and swiftly carry the messenges of the Gods, Hermes is the god of travelers, those who cross boundaries, as well as shepherds and herdsmen. His cunning and wit also left him viewed as a patron of those who made a living with their charisma and words, even as his trickery left him a patron of thieves and liars.
Here he is depicted in a cold-cast resin statue, sculpted with exquisite attention to every detail and hand painted so as to appear to be crafted of bronze. With his winged sandals leaving up a cloud of dust as he flies, and his short robe billowing about his waist, he appears intent upon his travels as he gazes down upon the mortals below; perhaps on some mission of urgency to the Gods of Olympus.
Measuring in at approximately 9 1/4" high, 7 1/2" wide, and 4 1/2" deep, this statue will easily fit upon most altars for your veneration and can be set upon your shelf or desk to decorate your home.
