  • This Is A Bronze Replica Of Giovanni Bologna'S "Hermes (The Flying Mercury)". It Depicts Hermes Standing On A Column Of Air Coming From The Mouth Of Zephyr, Creating An Illusion Of Floating. Many People Believe That The Modern Medical Symbol, A Staff With Two Coiled Snakes, Is Derived From The Staff Of Asklepios - But That Is Incorrect. In Fact That Modern Symbol Is Derived From The Caduceus (Magical Wand) Of Hermes, A Short Stick Or Staff With Two Snakes Coiled Around It. The Reason For This May Be Due To Hermes' Link With Alchemy - Alchemists Were, At One Time, Referred To As The Sons Of Hermes And Alchemy Blended In With Early Medical Practice. He Is Caught In Racing Upwards In A Winged Fury To Deliver His Message To The Gods. The Emphasis On Refined Surface And Cool Elegance And Beauty Implicates Bologna'S Mannerist Style. This Rendition Was Cast Using The Age-Old Technique Of Lost-Wax Casting And Finished With A Brown Patina Stain. It Stands Communicating The Fables And Messages Of The Antiquated Gods Upon A Black Marble Base With The Artist'S Signature. Giambologna, Born As Jean Boulogne, Incorrectly Known As Giovanni Da Bologna And Giovanni Bologna (1529 – 13 August 1608), Was A Sculptor, Known For His Marble And Bronze Statuary In A Late Renaissance Or Mannerist Style. Giambologna Was Born In Douai, Flanders (Now In France). After Youthful Studies In Antwerp With The Architect-Sculptor Jacques Du Broeucq, He Moved To Italy In 1550, And Studied In Rome. Giambologna Made Detailed Study Of The Sculpture Of Classical Antiquity. He Was Also Much Influenced By Michelangelo, But Developed His Own Mannerist Style
