Experience an exquisite sense of connection with history and artistry through our Hermes sculpture, inspired by the works of renowned Italian sculptor Giovanni da Bologna. Named in Rome as Mercury, Hermes is revered as the god of trade and eloquence, a divine symbol of wealth, cunning, and intelligence. This sculpture thus serves as the perfect gift for individuals with a knack for success - businessmen, athletes, and those involved in trade, advertising, or PR. Hermes' patronage of youth, athleticism, and gymnastics adds to the wide appeal of this sculpture.

This is not simply a piece of art, it’s a tribute to Giovanni da Bologna (1529-1608) – a Flemish-origin sculptor who left an indelible mark on the Italian art scene. Bologna is best remembered for his remarkable contributions to the sculptural decoration of Bologna's Neptune fountain in the early 1560s. It was this work that awarded him the moniker “Bolognese”. From the mid-1560s onwards, he sculpted in Florence and served as one of the prominent sculptors of late sixteenth and early seventeenth century.

In this Hermes sculpture, you can perceive the signature Bolognese finesse: a perfect balance of natural beauty, swift motion, and effortless grace embodied in the figure of the soaring Mercury. This art piece is modelled after Bologna’s original sculpture found in Florence's National Bargello Museum and has a replica hosted in Vienna's Museum of Art History.
