Hermes, from Greek mythology the son of Zeus and Maia, considered the herald of the god, able to move quickly and freely between the worlds of the mortal and the divine aided by his winged sandals as can be seen in this sculpture. Hermes is holding an anchor in one hand and on the other hand missing is the caduceus, staff is entwined by two serpents, sometimes surmounted by wings, symbolizing commerce and trade.
