The herma was an ancient rectangular protective sculpture featuring a male head, masculine bits, and little else. Frequently depicting Hermes, a deity celebrated for his endowments both godly and more human, these stones could be found throughout ancient Greece, especially at boundaries and crossings. Our more portable Herma is made with a quadrangle of green tourmaline, framed on each side with four spheres of gold, evoking the sacred number of the messenger god.
Green Tourmaline, 22K gold.
Handmade in New York City.
