The six-foot sculpture Mercury (c. 1780–1850), prominently placed atop the fountain in the rotunda of the National Gallery of Art, quickly became the Gallery's mascot, so to speak, when the West Building opened in 1941. Mercury points towards Mount Olympus, as a source of knowledge, truth, peace, and comfort, and serves as a symbol of the purposes of the Gallery.
