Hercules greek alabaster statue with color

Handmade greek alabaster statue of Hercules with color, the divine hero

Handmade greek alabaster statue of Hercules with color,, the divine hero. A fantastic souvenir from Greece!

Hercules  is a Roman hero and god, son of Zeus and the mortal Alcmene. In classical mythology, Hercules is famous for his strength, courage, ingenuity, and sexual prowess with both males and females and for his numerous adventures, of which the most renowned were the Twelve Labours.

Hercules has inspired many artists across the age and has been depicted numerous times in sculptures, pottery and paintings.

In ancient Greece many of the statues and architectural sculpture were colourfully painted in a way that is described as ''polychrome'' (deriving from the Greek words many and colour)? However, due to intensive weathering and other effects on the stone, the ''polychromy'' on Ancient Greek sculpture and architecture has substantially or totally faded, leading the scientists for centuries to believe that the statues were originally totally white.

***Please notice that any differences of colour, form and painting between the images and the products received are due to the fact that the items are 100% handmade. ***
