Marble head from a herm at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

Source : MyMiniFactory ( STL)

The messenger god Hermes was closely associated with boundaries, and his protective image in the form of a hearded head set on a rectangular stone shaft was placed at doorways and at strategic points alongside the road. This beautiful head gives a sense of the serene grandeur that marked images of Zeus during the high classical period. The most famous of these was the gigantic gold and ivory statue of Zeus at Olympia, made by Phidias.
