English: A herma, commonly in English herm (pl. hermai or hermae) is a sculpture with a head and perhaps a torso, above a plain, usually squared lower section, on which male genitals may also be carved at the appropriate height. The head originally represented the Greek god Hermes, but afterwards of other gods and distinguished people. The form originated in Ancient Greece, and was adopted by the Romans, and revived at the Renaissance in the form of terminal figures. More info
