Many people believe that the modern medical symbol, a stick with two coiled snakes, is derived from the stick of asklepios - but that's not true. In fact, this modern symbol is derived from the caducée (magic fly) of hermes, a small stick or stick with two snakes wrapped around it. The reason for this may be due to the link of hermes with alchemy - alchemists were, at one time, called the sons of hermes and alchemy mingled with the first medical practices. He is caught in a race up in a winged fury to deliver his message to the gods. The emphasis on the refined surface and casual elegance and beauty implies the mannerist style of bologna.
