Do No Harm

This is about the point where people who know their symbols speak up at how the Caduceus is commonly used as a symbol of medicine, even though it’s actually the symbol for Hermes, the god of messengers, travelers, thieves and liars.  Now the Rod of Asclepius is the staff held by Asclepius who was a Greek god of medicine.  Of course, all of this is moot as regardless of the meaning of the symbol, this person liked the Caduceus enough to have xRonix create a massive scar on his back.

When looking at the second photo, keep in mind his elbows are bent, which is causing the distortion, as you can see in the top photo, the wings are even.

  6. Just wanted to update some info on the symbolism if i may. The staff of Asclepius is the formal symbol of medicine. “The staff is a single walking stick with a serpent wrapped around it.” The staff of caduceus is often mistakenly used as a symbol of medicine. The pic shown here, the caduceus staff was indeed the staff of Hermes and was used to represent magic, in old times. However many organizations still use the caduceus symbol today, Largely in part to the Army erroneously adopting the caduceus as an emblem of the Med Corps, (1902) . Anyways i think it looks pretty cool, i hope much care is take to the patient.
