I think this paperweight is just great looking, and also, super smooth and hefty, feels great in the hand. The serpent-entwined Rod of Asclepius, also known as the Staff of Aesculapius, comes from Greek mythology (and in fact I purchased this from a seller in Greece), where it was wielded by the Greek god Asclepius, a deity associated with healing and medicine. So, a perfect gift for a front-line doctor or nurse or care-giver, to whom we all owe many gifts, indeed!
Excellent condition. 4 3/8" x 2 3/4" x 7/8".
