Photographer's Note

Nevsky Prospekt is one of the main streets of Saint Petersburg and there are many interesting buildings there. Here we can see one of the statues in front of Eliseyev Emporium (1903), a kind of mall in the imperial times. In those days the people guessed the building was vulgar. Anyway it is amazing for us today.
The sculptures of Amandus Adamson exposed in the façade are impressive. Here we can see Mercury, the Greek-Roman god of merchants, thieves and communications. We can see an anchor, fruits, a barrel of wine and a pack with goods at his feet, the baby face looks similar with him I guess.

A Avenida Nevsky Prospekt é uma das mais importantes vias de Săo Petersburgo e podemos encontrar vários prédios magníficos ao seu redor.
Vemos aqui uma das estátuas que adornam o Empório de Eliseyev (1903), era um tipo de shopping center da época imperial, mas os moradores da cidade achavam na época que o prédio era vulgar. Mas hoje em dia ele é magnífico para nós. As esculturas de Amandus Adamson expostas na fachada săo impressionantes. Vemos aqui o deus Mercúrio, uma divindade greco-romana que protegia os comerciantes, os ladrőes e as comunicaçőes. Aos pés do deus temos uma âncora, frutas, um barril de vinho e um pacote de mercadorias. Acho a carinha do bebę parecida com Mercúrio.
