Statuette of Herakles

This figure was once one of a pair that decorated the shoulders of a massive bronze wine bowl. Several other very similar figures are known and they may all derive from a larger version of, perhaps, the fourth century BC. This figure is carefully worked: the finely modelled muscles of his arm, legs and torso reflect the tension of his pose, with arching back and widely planted legs.
