Valuable bust in statuary white marble with black marble base, from the first half of the 20th century. Masterfully made and sculpted, probably by a master sculptor who remained anonymous over time. It represents Hermes, a god of myths and religions of ancient Greece, whose main role is that of messenger of the gods. The son of Zeus and the Pleiad Maia, he was one of the twelve Olympians.
In Roman mythology the correspondent of Hermes is Mercury, who, although he is a god of Etruscan origin, has many characteristics similar to the Greek Hermes, being in fact the god of commerce and thieves.
