Resting Hermes statue reproduction in bronze of vintage bronze sculpture Roman, datable to around 79 BC. The original statue was found during the Excavations of Herculaneum, in 1758 and is now preserved in the Archaeological Museum of Naples.

Hermes is a God of Greek mythology, in Rome it is known as MercuryFor the ancient Greeks, the spirit of passage and crossing was embodied in Hermes: they believed that the god manifested himself in any type of exchange, transfer, violation, overcoming, change, transit, all concepts that in some way refer to a passage from one place, or from one state, to another. This explains him being related to the changes in the lot of men and why he was one of the few who was allowed to go to the Underworld.

The work depicts the young god Hermes, the messenger of the gods, as he rests on a rock.
