Bronze Bust of Hippocrates "The Father of Medicine"

About

High quality Grand Tour bronze bust of Hippocrates depicting the bearded Greek god on a faux marble scagliola plinth. Modeled after the ancient Roman marble original. The black stepped base with a laurel wreath in relief. A great gift for your favorite physician, this together with the bust of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and healing, listed here make the perfect pair. Every doctors office should have one or both! Hippocrates is commonly portrayed as the paragon of the ancient physician, and credited with coining the Hippocratic Oath, still relevant and in use today. He is also credited with greatly advancing the systematic study of clinical medicine, summing up the medical knowledge of previous schools, and prescribing practices for physicians through the Hippocratic Corpus and other works.
