Herm or Herma trace their origins
to ancient Athens. Often used as
a protection for travellers, they in
time came to be used as property
markers. Popular in the Italian
renaissance as Terms (Seasons).
The Chilstone Herm is based on
Pan and sports Pan Pipes instead
of the traditional decoration. From
an original at Clandon Park, Surrey.
