Winged Mercury


This is a detail of a sculpture that was copied from Mercury in the National Gallery of Art, which was in turn derived from an earlier version. As a child and young person, I enjoyed visiting the National Gallery and went many times.

We saw this graceful statue at Little Oatlands near Leesburg.
