Bas-relief of Heracles with lion skin. In this relief, Heracles is depicted sitting on a lion skin, inspired by scenes from Greek ceramic vases found in the British Museum in London. This relief reproduces a scene from a hydria (a type of Greek ceramic vase) created by the Painter of Midias between 420-400 BC. In the original vase, the upper register depicted the kidnapping of the daughters of Leucippus by the Dioscuri (the twins Castor and Pollux), while the lower one shows Heracles’ work in the garden of the Hesperides.

Heracles, called Hercules in Rome, was a hero and demigod, son of the god Zeus and a mortal woman, Alcmene. Hercules’s most famous feat was the Twelve Labors, assigned to him by King Eurystheus. These were tasks that were initially considered impossible to perform, yet the demigod managed to complete them, sometimes relying on his legendary strength, such as in the case of the Nemean lion, whose skin the hero wore thereafter, and sometimes on cunning, as in the theft of the apples from the garden of the Hesperides.

The incorporation of reproductions of classical reliefs into the decoration of our homes helps us recreate a unique atmosphere that evokes the greatness of past civilizations, merging ancient art with contemporary design and style. Representations of scenes from Greek mythology, with their figures of gods and heroes, transport viewers to a world full of mystery.

These bas-reliefs become central pieces of the room that not only beautify the space but also tell stories from distant times, creating a timeless connection between the past and the present.
