A perfect gift for a doctor, nurse or pharmacist – a sculpture depicting Rod of Asclepius, a snake writhing around a wooden cane. This has been a symbol of medicine since ancient times. A bronze statuette packed in an elegant wooden gift box, lined with red satin. A beautiful, signed figure, made of an exclusive material – bronze, very precisely, with attention to the smallest details. Set on a black marble base. The figure makes a great aesthetic impression and has a timeless style. The gift is completed with personalization – the possibility of adding an engraved plate with an individual dedication on the lid of the box. A great idea to thank a specialist for a successful operation or as a souvenir for a medical graduate at the end of their studies or specialization.
Aesculapian snake (Zamenis longissimus) The Greeks considered snakes to be remarkably clever animals. In mythology, it was from this serpent Asclepius – the Greek god of medicine – that he received the secret knowledge about healing and resurrecting people.
Rod of Asclepius – symbol of medicine. In eighteenth-century England, the most authoritative doctor had a cane with a pure gold handle. The first doctor to receive this cane was John Radcliffe.
This sculpture is entirely handmade, using the so-called lost wax method. Despite the great care with which our bronze sculptures are made, there is a possibility that this figure may slightly differ from other such sculptures shown in the photos. The marble from witch the base of the sculpture is made of is a natural material. Consequently, we will never find two identical pieces. This makes this item even more special. It is an excellent work, and associating with it gives you life-long pleasure.
