This is a large and beautifully detailed bronze sculpture of Mercury, also known as Hermes, dating from the second half of the 20th century.

 
Mercury is beautifully depicted with a striking verdigris patina, standing on a gust of wind issued from the mouth of the god Zephyrus. Mercury’s heels are winged allowing the God to fly through the air and deliver messages to the Olympian Gods. 
 
This high-quality hot cast solid bronze statue was produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method. 
 
The attention to detail here is remarkable and this large bronze is sure to receive the maximum amount of attention wherever it is placed either inside your house or in your garden.

Hermes  - 

was the great Olympian God of animal husbandry, roads, travel, hospitality, heralds, diplomacy, trade, thievery, language, writing, persuasion, cunning wiles, athletic contests, gymnasiums, astronomy, and astrology.

He was also the personal agent and herald of Zeus, the king of the gods. Hermes was depicted as either a handsome and athletic, beardless youth, or as an older bearded man. His attributes included the herald's wand or kerykeion (Latin caduceus), winged boots, and sometimes a winged travellers cap and chlamys cloak. He was known as Mercury to the Romans.

Lost Wax Method
sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue or the Latin, cera perduta is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artists sculpture.

In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
