Hercules Torso in plaster. This statue is a reproduction of a sculpture representing Hercules.
The demigod Heracles, called Hercules by the Romans, is one of the most famous heroes in Greek mythology, known for his incredible strength and courage. The son of the god Zeus and the mortal Alcmena, Hercules had to face a series of challenges to prove his worth and earn immortality, such as the famous 12 labors imposed on him as penance for the murder of his wife and children, committed in a fit of madness. Among the best-known trials are the capture of the Nemean lion, the cleaning of the Augean stables, and the obtaining of the golden apples from the Garden of the Hesperides. Hercules is a symbol of resilience and determination in the face of adversity, and his figure has inspired generations of people throughout history.
