The caduceus, the modern day symbol of a health professional, is rich in symbolism. It is said that the Greek God Hermes, the patron deity of the medical profession, carried a staff that represents the connection between earth and sky with the globe at the top representing the sun.
The snakes represent healing and immortality for their ability to shed their skin, which was seen as regeneration by ancient peoples.
