A herma (Ancient Greek: ἑρμῆς, pl. ἑρμαῖ hermai),commonly in English herm, is a sculpture with a head, and perhaps a torso, above a plain, usually squared lower section. The form originated in Ancient Greece, and was adopted by the Romans, and revived at the Renaissance in the form of term figures and Atlantes.
