The large figures are crafted from bronze and depict the Classical Roman figures Mercury and Fortuna. Both figures are shown supported on cylindrical plinths which feature a continuous relief panel depicting cherubs. The figures are shown balancing on one foot on the plinth, above the mask of Boreas, the personification in Greek mythology of the north wind. Boreas is shown blowing a gust of wind which supports the figures. The male figure Mercury is shown holding the caduceus, the name for his staff, in his left hand, and wearing his winged helmet on his head. The female figure Fortuna is shown blowing a trumpet towards the sky. The models are based on works by the Flemish-Italian sculptor Giambologna (1529-1608).
