This pair of figures is based on sculptures by the Mannerist artist Giambologna. The patinated bronze sculptures depict the Classical Roman figures Mercury and Fortuna. Mercury is the male figure shown wearing a winged helmet, and holding a staff, known as the caduceus, in his left hand. Fortuna is depicted as a female figure raising her hand into the air. Each figure is shown supported by a gust of wind issuing forth from a mask. The masks are set on cylindrical plinths, which feature cherub decorations in relief.
