Giambologna has become well known for an acute sense of action and movement, and a refined and differentiated surface finish. Among his most famous works are mercury (of which he made four versions), he is represented wearing a winged petase on the head. He carries in his hand the caducee, the stick he received from Apollo, who came to symbolize the practice of medicine.
The god raises an arm to point towards heaven, in a gesture borrowed from the repertoire of classical rhetoric characteristic of the giambologna maniera. The quality of this refined art is rarely found in the recast bronzes.
