Description for Caduceus Brooches
The Caduceus dates back to at least Greek times and is known as the herald's wand or staff. It was carried by Hermes, the Olympian deity in ancient Greek religion. Today it is universally recognized as a medical symbol.
It is a short staff entwined by two serpents and often surmounted by wings. The serpent, often thought of as a symbol of destruction, is actually a symbol of rebirth and rejuvenation due to the serpent's ability to shed skin.
This Caduceus brooch would make the perfect gift for anyone in the medical profession or whos interested in healing and rejuvenation.
