Not Hestia

The question was "Where?" not "Who?" but thanks for setting off an entertaining ramble around the interwebs.

I had guessed the image was Mercury, but I didn't see any wings on his feet. But taking a closer look in Photo Editor, I spotted a caduceus in his hand and what might be a wing on his head. What convinced me finally was discovering that Mercury is the god of commerce, among many other things. So what better image for a downtown commercial building?
But which one? Keep looking.
Meanwhile, click here for a look at Hestia, who kept the home fires burning but didn't run around with torches.
