Bronze Sculpture of "Caduceus" by James N. Muir, 1997

This sculpture stands outside the Healthcare Shea Hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona. The second installation of twelve, it stands 12 feet high and has a 9 foot wingspan.

The typical view of a caduceus is a winged staff entwined by two serpents, but here the statue depicts an Angel of healing, a patron saint for doctors with many different symbols of healing throughout.
