Description
Herakles, the youthful hero god, stands before us in majestic splendor. At one time his hand held a club. His left arm is draped with the skin of the Nemean lion, and his hand once held the apple of the Hesperides. A work of this enormous vigor and regal beauty almost certainly imitates a larger statue, perhaps a cult image at some famous temple site. The relatively small size of the god in no way diminishes his aura of divinity. - (FZ.329)
