Our Asclepius statue will bring the sense of good health and healing anywhere in your home. He is the god of medicine, restoration, rejuvenation and physicians, his works and sacrifices made him earn the name. Those physicians and attendants who served and patronize this god were known as the Therapeutae of Asclepius.
In ancient Greek religion and mythology, Asclepius or Hepius is a hero and god of medicine. He is the son of Apollo and the grandson of Zeus. He acquired the appellation from his father Apollo also known as “Paean” or “The Healer”. His father taught him a many things about medicine. Asclepius embodies the healing phase of the medical arts. He is a father of five daughters named: Hygieia (“Hygiene”, the goddess of health, cleanliness and sanitation), Iaso (the goddess of recuperation from illness), Aceso (the goddess of healing process), Aegle (the goddess of the glow of good health), and Panaca (the goddess of universal remedy). Have you ever seen a snake-entwined staff? That is inspired from the rod of Asclepius and remains as the symbol of medicine today.
