Mercury

A Laibachian version of the god Mercury is presented on the front of the T-shirt and “Laibach” is written on the back.  

Mercury (from Wikipedia):

Mercury (Latin: Mercurius) was a messenger, and a god of trade, the son of Maia Maiestas and Jupiter in Roman mythology. His name is related to the Latin word merx (“merchandise”; compare merchantcommerce, etc.), mercari (to trade), and merces (wages). In his earliest forms, he appears to have been related to the Etruscan deity Turms, but most of his characteristics and mythology were borrowed from the analogous Greek god, Hermes. Latin writers rewrote Hermes' myths and substituted his name with that of Mercury. However, there are at least two myths that involve Mercury that are Roman in origin. In Virgil's Aeneid, Mercury reminds Aeneas of his mission to found the city of Rome. In Ovid's Fasti, Mercury is assigned to escort the nymph Larunda to the underworld. Mercury, however, fell in love with Larunda and made love to her on the way; this act has also been interpreted as a rape. Larunda thereby became mother to two children, referred to as the Lares, invisible household gods.

Mercury has influenced the name of many things in a variety of scientific fields, such as the planet Mercury, and the element mercury. The word mercurial is commonly used to refer to something or someone erratic, volatile, or unstable, deriving from Mercury's swift flights from place to place. He is often depicted holding the Caduceus in his left hand. The caduceus has also become a symbol of medical workers worldwide, due to its similarity to the rod of Asclepius.

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2012

    Great print on a top quality shirt. I guess the other reviewer should consider buying a shirt in his size the next time, not one two numbers too large.


  7. could be better 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jul 2012

    great print on a very bad T-shirt.
    It's one of those to fit anyone but doesn't look good. It's just hanging.
    Anyway, wouldn't mind to pay some extra if T-shirt model would be better.
