Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Asklepios "to cut open" - son of Apollo. God of Medicine & Healing. One of his daughters is Hygieia. Chiron raised him and taught him the Art of Medicine. He was killed by Zeus with a thunderbolt for raising the dead, but Zeus realized the good that Asklepios had done for mankind so he transformed him into the constellation Ophiuchus "The Serpent Holder". This Staff is still used by some Health organisations today, whilst others have chosen the Caduceus instead. The confusion between the two symbols seems to have originated from early in the 16th Century when both symbols were used as printer's marks especially in the 17th and 18th Centuries as frontispieces to pharmacopoeias.

(ll. 1-4) I begin to sing of Asclepius, son of Apollo and healer of sicknesses. In the Dotian plain fair Coronis, daughter of King Phlegyas, bare him, a great joy to men, a soother of cruel pangs. (l. 5) And so hail to you, lord: in my song I make my prayer to thee!

Materials Used

Outer fabric is cotton drill and hand embroidery is metallic or cotton threads. Lining is sheeting and drawstring is cotton.

As an interesting note, one of my customers who used to be in the Army medical corps in the UK years ago, recently told me that this is still now the Symbol used in the cap badge of the Royal Army Medical Corps.
