The Bremen - Antique High Relief Hermes Cameo 14k Gold Mythology

Dive into the realm of Greek mythology with this exquisite antique high relief pendant/brooch cameo, capturing the essence of Hermes, the swift-footed messenger of the Greek gods revered as the deity of trade, travelers, and thieves. The cameo, with its incredible level of detail and unmatched quality of carving, brings Hermes to life — from the intricate texturing of his hair and the delicate feathers of his wing to the subtle veining on Apollo's neck.
