Hermes Picture

I love Greek mythology,it's full of interesting stuff.

So,this is Hermes,not really what I imagine him to look like,but close enough.

-I tried to make the wings on his pointy cap (which is called petasus or something like that)look like cock wings because it is one of the symbols of Hermes (along with the tortoise).
-The rainbow on the background is there because it's a symbol of Iris(who is,like Hermes, a messanger of the gods) and because it symbolize,even in Christian mythology,communication between God(s) and mortals.
-His hair is similar to that of the "traditional" angels,because they all are heralds.

(:3 ...I really like how the snakes on his staff (kerykeion in Greek, or Caduceus in Latin)came out...)
