Description

Heracles-Hercules Bronze staue
Condition: New, made in Greece.
Approximately
Height: 24.5cm - 9.6 inches
Width: 18 cm - 7 inches
Weight: 2.1 kg
Material: Bronze

Extraordinary strength, courage, ingenuity, and sexual prowess with both males and females were among his characteristic attributes. Heracles used his wits on several occasions when his strength did not suffice, such as when laboring for the king Augeas of Elis, wrestling the giant Antaeus, or tricking Atlas into taking the sky back onto his shoulders.
Together with Hermes he was the patron and protector of gymnasia and palaestrae..His iconographic attributes are the lion skin and the club. These qualities did not prevent him from being regarded as a playful figure who used games to relax from his labors and played a great deal with children.By conquering dangerous archaic forces he is said to have "made the world safe for mankind" and to be its benefactor.
Heracles was an extremely passionate and emotional individual, capable of doing both great deeds for his friends (such as wrestling with Thanatos on behalf of Prince Admetus, who had regaled Heracles with his hospitality, or restoring his friend Tyndareus to the throne of Sparta after he was overthrown) and being a terrible enemy who would wreak horrible vengeance on those who crossed him, as Augeas, Neleus and Laomedon all found out to their cost.
This statue is inspired by
The Sixth Labour of Heracles, here is the story:
After cleaning the Augean Stables, Eurystheus sent Heracles to defeat the Stymphalian birds. Heracles could not go too far into the swamp, for it would not support his weight. Athena, noticing the hero's plight, gave Heracles a rattle which Hephaestus had made especially for the occasion. Heracles shook the rattle and frightened the birds into the air. Heracles then shot many of them down with his poisoned arrows.
The rest flew far away, never to plague the marshes again. Heracles then brought some of the birds he had killed to Eurystheus, who then sent Heracles to capture the Cretan Bull. The surviving birds made a new home on an island in the Euxine Sea. The Argonauts would later encounter them there.

I am so happy with this purchase! He is so sexy. I appreciate the quality, the feel of the material and all the little details that show the excellent craftsmanship and care that went into making this piece. And they delivered it so quickly from when I ordered it. They shipped it the very next day and it came from Greece all the way to Los Angeles in less than a full week. It's a family craft too. Beautiful artistry and great customer service.
