Among his most famous works are mercury (of which he made four versions), placed on one foot, supported by a zephyr. It is depicted wearing a winged petase on the head and winged sandals that give it speed in flight. He carries in his hand the caducee, the stick which Apollo gave him and which came to symbolize the exercise of medicine.
