This beautiful classic bust is not marked, but most likely made in Italy as it’s inscribed “Ermes” which is the Italian version of the Greek god Hermes. The casting is wonderful with detailed facial features and curly hair.

In Greek lore, Hermes served as the messenger of the gods to the humans. He was the protector and patron of shepherds, orators, literature, poets, athletes and sports, commerce, and invention. In Roman adaptations, he is linked to the god Mercury.

The bust is made of white plaster painted gold with a bit of green patina in places. It’s in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The vintage condition of the paint adds to overall antiquated look. If you’d rather have a not so vintage look or a different color, this would be an easy item to repaint to suit your tastes.

This statue weighs in at almost 5 lbs., so it will be shipped Parcel Post for the best shipping rate.
