HISTORY ROMAN GREEK HERMES BUST STATUE SCULPTURE www.NEO-MFG.com

Found in the ruins of the temple of Hera at Olympia, site of the original Olympic games. Praxiteles

Hermes in Greek mythology, is the god of boundaries and of the travelers who cross them, of shepherds and cowherds, of orators, literature and poets, of athletics, of weights and measures and invention and commerce in general, of the cunning of thieves, and the messenger from the gods to humans. In Roman mythology Hermes is Mercury. 

 It has been said that "In the fourth century, the gods descended a little from Olympus and became more like human beings." That might have been said concerning this magnificent work of Praxiteles. With his Hermes the abstract beauty has become more closely related to physical beauty. It is as though the master had changed marble to flesh through the soft modeling of the face. The detached gaze implies a dreamy contemplation. The head has been made from the full figure of Hermes holding the infant Dionysos. ), Skopas and Lysippos were considered the greatest sculptors of the fourth century. We know the works of all three through Roman copies which were made, but the Hermes of Praxiteles is the only statue that has come down to us from the actual hand of one of these great sculptors.
