The Golden God Picture

Done for #CRPhotomanipulation's Planetary Mythology contest.

... Oh mighty messenger of the gods of the upper and lower worlds ... - Aeschylus.

I chose to portray Mercury/Hermes, the messenger. He's always been one of my favourite Greek gods - he's the guy who always bends the rules and tests the limits. And while he did get thrown out of Olympus for not knowing what 'private property' means - he stole from most of the other gods there at the very beginning of his stay - he's also the messenger and the ambassador. And the one who guided the dead down to Hades, which is where the dark blue background comes from in this image.

Hope you like it.
