Sky Watch : Hermes God Statue

You can find Hermes god statue in old town area of Jakarta (the capital city of Indonesia). The exact position of this statue is on the back yard of Jakarta History Museum (Fatahillah Museum). At 17th century, this old town area was a center of Batavia City (later become Jakarta). At that time, Fatahillah Museum was a government building at Netherland colonial era.

The Greek god Hermes was the son of Zeus. He was the god of shepherds, travellers, merchants, and even thieves, and he also had the role of herald (messenger) of the gods.

That's a wonderful statue. I love the first shot with the statue against the blue sky and showing the history museum behind it. Great contrast in that shot. I'm also glad you posted the second one from a different perspective to show how far up the back leg is.

I love Greek mythology, have spent time in Greece, so this was a really fun post for me! Thank you so much for your visits/comments! They're always appreciated! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

It looks like squaring off to fly to the blue sky. This statue describes The Hermes God in Greek myths.
