This statue was gifted by the Amsterdam Economists Association (KAE) in honour of the 100th anniversary of UvA Economics and Business.

Hermes is the god of trade and wealth, eloquence, travellers and luck, but at the same time also of deceit and the thieves, and companion of the soul to the underworld. This contradiction shows that, like many things in economics and business, Hermes also represents duality.

The statue is a replica of Giovanni da Bologna’s statue which is on display in the Louvre. You can find it in the E-hall next to the Room for Discussion podium.
