Artwork Explained: Hermes

This week we are super excited to be announcing the arrival of our all new Greek Mythology inspired Hermes apparel range!

Hermes was the winged herald and messenger of the Olympian gods, he was also a divine trickster, and the greek god of roads, flocks, commerce, and thieves.

Hermes being the son of Zeus and Maia, was a gifted and divine new born, he invented the lyre and stole Apollo’s cattle on his very first day of life after which he came back to his cradle in mount Olympus and tucked himself back in his cradle. Hermes was also the only Olympian capable of crossing the border between the living and the dead.

Hermes was considered a darling to the Gods. It was said that Artemis taught Hermes how to hunt and Pan taught him how to play the pipes and he also guided Persephone back to her mother, but above all of Hermes was exceptionally close to his father and acted as a wingman to Zeus.  

The animals most closely associated with Hermes were snakes, roosters, tortoises, the ram and hawk and his associated symbols were winged sandals, a satchel, winged helmet, the Caduceus which was a short staff entwined by two snakes and the lyre.

We hope you love this range just as much as we do! 

We can't wait to bring you so many more show stopping designs!
