Mercury was the god of the dealers and traders, but also of the thieves. He was responsible for contracts, was a peacemaker and leader of the souls to the underworld. In the roman provinces of northern europe, more statuettes of Mercury were found than of any other god or goddess of the roman pantheon. Corresponding to his area of responsibility, the ring depicts his typical image: He carries a purse and his staff, called Caduceus. In ancient mythology  it is a rod with two snakes, winded among each other in peace. Also the winged boot and a greek travelling hat, the Petasus are his characteristics. The second image depicts an original fresco of Mercury from Pompeji.

The statue bases on original finds from Raetia. The figure consísts of heavy, massive bronze and is handcrafted and polished in very time-consuming and authentic technique. Height including the pedestal 160mm.
