私たちのコンセプト。

それは「商業神ヘルメスの恩恵」を世界中の事業者と消費者に供給すること。

 

ギリシア神話に登場するヘルメスは最高神ゼウスの子。

商業のシンボル、魔法の杖「ケーリュケイオン」(ラテン語:カドゥケウス)の持ち主です。

翼のついたサンダルと帽子を身につけ、人々の心をつかみ、交渉が上手で聡明なヘルメスはゼウスの大のお気に入り。

 

物心つくと、すぐに神々の伝令者に任命されます。

 

その後、ヘルメスはローマ神話で「メルクリウス」となり、英語では「マーキュリー」と呼ばれます。太陽に最も近い惑星「水星」を英語でマーキュリーと呼ぶのは、これが由来ですね。

 

 

私たちは、社会のために役立つ事業を商業の側面から創造し、供給し、人々の日常生活を活性し、日本はもちろん世界の事業者と消費者に喜びを供給したい。

 

こんな理由で集い、とても家族的な小さなチームとして結成されました。

そして、この初心を忘れないため、会社名は「World of The Mercury!」にしました。

 

最後に「!」マークが付いているのは、絶対に忘れないと決めた時の、その「心意気」からです。

 

 


 

Hermes is an Olympian deity in ancient Greek religion and mythology. Hermes is considered the herald of the gods. He is also considered the protector of human heralds, travellers, ,merchants, and orators.He is able to move quickly and freely between the worlds of the mortal and the divine, aided by his winged sandals. Hermes plays the role of the psychopomp or "soul guide"—a conductor of souls into the afterlife.

 

In myth, Hermes functioned as the emissary and messenger of the gods, and was often presented as the son of Zeus and Maia, the Pleiad. He is regarded as "the divine trickster,"about which the Homeric Hymn to Hermes offers the most well-known account.

 

His attributes and symbols include the herma, the rooster, the tortoise, satchel or pouch, talaria (winged sandals), and winged helmet or simple petasos, as well as the palm tree, goat, the number four, several kinds of fish, and incense.However, his main symbol is the caduceus, a winged staff intertwined with two snakes copulating and carvings of the other gods.His attributes had previously influenced the earlier Etruscan god Turms, a name borrowed from the Greek "herma".

 

In Roman mythology, Hermes was known as Mercury,a name derived from the Latin merx, meaning "merchandise," and the origin of the words "merchant" and "commerce."

 


 

The kerukeion(caduceus) is the staff carried by Hermes in Greek mythology and consequently by Hermes Trismegistus in Greco-Egyptian mythology. The same staff was also borne by heralds in general, for example by Iris, the messenger of Hera. It is a short staff entwined by two serpents, sometimes surmounted by wings. In Roman iconography, it was often depicted being carried in the left hand of Mercury, the messenger of the gods.

 

Some accounts suggest that the oldest known imagery of the kerukeion(caduceus) has its roots in Mesopotamia with the Sumerian god Ningishzida; whose symbol, a staff with two snakes intertwined around it, dates back to 4000 BC to 3000 BC.

 

As a symbolic object, it represents Hermes (or the Roman Mercury), and by extension trades, occupations, or undertakings associated with the god. In later Antiquity, the kerukeion(caduceus) provided the basis for the astrological symbol representing the planet Mercury. Thus, through its use in astrology, alchemy, and astronomy it has come to denote the planet and elemental metal of the same name. It is said the wand would wake the sleeping and send the awake to sleep. If applied to the dying, their death was gentle; if applied to the dead, they returned to life.

 

By extension of its association with Mercury and Hermes, the kerukeion(caduceus) is also a recognized symbol of commerce and negotiation, two realms in which balanced exchange and reciprocity are recognized as ideals.This association is ancient, and consistent from the Classical period to modern times.The caduceus is also used as a symbol representing printing, again by extension of the attributes of Mercury.
