Aesculapian snake (Zamenis longissimus) The Greeks considered snakes to be remarkably clever animals. In mythology, from this snake Asclepius – the Greek god of medicine – received the secret knowledge about healing and resurrecting people.
Rod of Asclepius – a 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 hand made, using the lost wax method. Despite the great attention with which our bronze sculptures are made, it is possible that this figure may slightly differ from other such sculptures shown on the pictures. Marble, from which the sculpture base is made, is a natural material. Therefore, we will never find two identical pieces. This makes this item even more unique. It is an excellent work, and associate with it gives pleasure for life.
