Hermes? What should we call this Greek God?

Hermes?  What should we call this Greek God?  As the commission to create a 3 foot mask fragment of a Classical Greek God progresses,  I wonder who it is that is showing up under my hands?  Here he is so far,  a work in progress....

The negative space is almost as important as the positive space of any sculpture.  So,  as I work on the big piece, I practice breaking various pieces in order to find the just right shape for the fragment. In this photo you can see the small "maquette" size  mask,  broken in to various shapes.
