Did You Know? The entwined snakes imagery is often associated with the caduceus or wand of the Greek god Hermes. A single serpent encircling a tree limb represents the staff of Asclepius, an ancient Greek physician. Every piece from Wild Goose Studio is handmade by skilled craft-workers using a cold cast method. Any variations in finish are part of the unique appeal.
