Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This symbol is the the Caduceus of Mercury for the Romans and the Karykeion of Hermes for the Greeks. Many Medical organizations use this as their symbol, however this is a Herald's Staff. Mercury (Roman), Hermes (Greek) is the Messenger of the Gods, Protector of Merchant's and thieves, Conductor of the Dead, God of Invention and Travel amongst many other things. In the 7th Century Hermes was linked to Alchemy. The Staff has a Transformative power and is linked to the polarities of Male and Female. It has Hermetic importance too.

For ALL my products I am inspired by mythology and many faiths. ALL the embroidery is done by hand which I feel enables me to focus on the symbology of the design. I do thorough research on all the symbols and images on my items.

Materials Used

Cotton Drill outer with sheeting for lining. Hand embroidery in either Metallic or Cotton threads. The cord is cotton.

More Info

One of the photographs you see was sent to me by a customer (permission granted to share) of her cotton threads embroidered bag laying on her Altar with a Hermes statue.

I am available for Commission work and privacy is ensured for any design or sigil which has been requested. I am also happy to talk about the possibility in changing the colour of a design. Email me on or contact me through Artfire.
