Let’s hear your thoughts! Who do you think would win an epic duel between Hercules vs. Achilles?

Farnese Hercules Large Statue

Farnese Hercules Large Statue

It’s no wonder Hercules is portrayed to the point of exhaustion in this sculpture, The Farnese Hercules Statue. Famously Hercules had a huge ‘to-do’ list, known as the “Twelve Labors.” Make no mistake Hercules was no hero to mess with. Among those “Twelve Labors” was slaying a ferocious tiger which makes him a tough contender in our Mythological Duel.  The Farnese Hercules Statue was sculpted circa 330 B.C. and is now located in Museo Nazionale, Naples. This replica is from the Curators Collection: direct cast of a museum original. Cast in quality designer resin from a museum original, it is finished to replicate weathered stone, adding sophisticated style to your home or garden gallery.

Achilles Sculptural Bust 17" High

Achilles was the bravest of all Greeks as told in the stories of the Trojan Wars. Mythology portrays Achilles as powerful, cruel and arrogant, given to violent outbursts of temper. Nevertheless, to many he was a symbol of youth and bravery who was doomed to an early but glorious death, a hero of epic dimensions. Of course we all know his only weakness that lead to his demise, his heel. Achilles Sculptural Bust is made of bonded stone here in our Statue.com artisan work shop and is a Statue.com exclusive.
