Rod of Asclepius

The Rod of Asclepius is the most prominent symbol of healthcare, healing and medicine in the modern world. Its origins, however, can be traced back to Greek mythology and represents the medical prowess of the demi-God Asclepius, who was known for his healing powers.

The Rod of Asclepius includes two elements. The staff, which is a symbol of authority and a serpent coiled around it. According to Greek mythology, Asclepius got his medical knowledge through whispering snakes, who have the ability to shed their skin and emerge healthier than before. They, therefore, represent rebirth and rejuvenation.

Artist Ovidiu Kloska marries these two worlds to create his visually stunning interpretation of this symbol that was commissioned by Art-ma.
