It truly is a remarkable combination (the one with the Egyptian Anubis), Hermes - who is a little similar to Anubis, could also travel between the Heavens (Zeus), Earth (Humans) and Underworld (Hades).
He was considered to be a messenger between the three worlds.

Here is a painting of Hermes with the souls at the river of Acheron. By Adolf Hirémy-Hirschl.

It's just the dawning of our love.
I feel you your heart it sings.
I feel you the joy it brings.
Where heaven waits there's golden
gates and back again. You take me to
and lead me through oblivion.
Where angels sing spread their wings
my love's on high. You take me home
to glory's throne by and by.
This is the morning of our love.
It's just the dawning of our love.

The Croatian Apoxyomenos



Quote:
The Croatian Apoxyomenos is one of the rare preserved Greek statues which used to adorn Greek temples and cities, especially their training grounds (gymnasion, palaistra). The statue was raised from the sea in the vicinity of the islet of Vele Orjule near Lošinj, in 1999. After comprehensive conservation work, which took all of six years, it was presented to the public in Zagreb in 2006, together with an extensive exhibition.

The Croatian Apoxyomenos is a 192cm-high bronze statue, set on a well-preserved original plinth of a height of 10 cm. It portrays a young athlete who has just completed his bout or exercise, in a moment of relaxation, when he is totally intent on cleaning his body of oil, sweat and dust (Gr. apoxyesis), and thus it is called the Apoxyomenos.

The statue was found on the sea bed off the islet of Vele Orjule, near Lošinj. It was a chance find by René Wouters, a Belgian tourist...more>
