Man and His Symbols
by Carl Jung

"The Greek god Hermes, (above) who was called "psycho-pomp" (soul guide) had the function of guiding the dead to the underworld, above a stone herm, which was placed at the crossroads. On the side of the herm is a snake twined around a staff: this symbol, (the caduceus) was carried over to the Roman god Mercury (below)."

"A still more important and widespread symbol of chthonic transcendence is the motif of the two entwined serpents. These are the famous Naga serpents of ancient India; and we also find them in Greece as the entwined serpents on the end of the staff belonging to the god Hermes. As the serpents are represented in the act of sexual union ... we can draw certain conclusions about the function of the herm as a symbol of fertility." ~ Carl Jung
