Mercury and Two Allegorical Figures was carved by limestone sculptor Henry Saunders between 1896 and 1897. The sculpture was formerly located atop Indiana National Bank Building at the intersection of Virginia Avenue and South Pennsylvania from 1897-1970. The INB building was designed by August C. Bohlen, and was razed in 1970.
The sculpture features the figure of the Roman god Mercury, who often represents Commerce, with winged helmet and sandals crouched behind two seated female figures.
