Pausanias, the writer and geographer of the second century. A.D. accurately described this statue. Thanks to its description it was possible to attribute it to Praxiteles, the great Greek sculptor of the 4th century BC.
The God Hermes holds in the left arm the small Dionysus which seems to reach out towards a bunch of grapes which the god probably held with his right hand.
"The myth tells that the young god was ordained by Zeus to bring the newborn Dionysus, immediately after the miraculous birth from the thigh of the father of the Gods, to the mythical land of Nisa, to entrust him to the Nymphs who would raise him away from Hera's jealousy.
"It is the only one original sculpture come down to us from antiquity attributable with certainty to Praxiteles, an artist who expressed his particular talent in a way he found no equal. In this work the realistic trends of the time, like the texture of the hanging fabric that makes it seem real, blend that the introspective idealism that pervades the figure of the god, giving it an unsurpassed charm.
