Image Description

A Harlequin with the symbols of Mercury stands atop a globe. He wears a winged helmet, a red horned mask, and red winged slippers. In his right hand he holds the caduceus, a winged staff around which two snakes twine (one black and one white). In his left hand he holds a globe topped by a cross. His costume features red, black, blue, and green diamonds. Vine-like red flourishes surround him. The globe below him has an outer ring filled with red and green snake scales, with four evenly spaced white spirals. The center of the globe is divided in four quadrants. The upper left quadrant contains clouds, the upper right quadrant contains waves, the lower right quadrant contains buildings and towers, and the lower left quadrant contains flames.
