In an arabesque pose, balancing on a gust of wind, Mercury points to the sky. This reproduction is inspired by Giovanni da Bologna’s bronze sculpture (1580) in the Bargello National Museum in Florence, Italy. In Roman mythology, Mercury is the messenger to the gods. Recognized by his winged feet and helmet, he is also the patron of travel. Mercury is known as Hermes in Greek myth, and is noted as the protector of merchants and the god of commerce. The site location here in Greenwood Village carries on his ancient presence, as he stands as a symbol to effectively protect the viable, commercial area.
