A personalized tribute to THE CADUCEUS,
with scissors, sewing needle, thread and initials seamlessly integrated within.
THE CADUCEUS is a herald’s staff

God of communication and boundaries (dividing life and death).
An escort of spirits to the underworld and deliverer of dreams to mortals, Hermes was the middleman between earthlings and the divine.
