Majestic marble bust greek Thassos depicting Hercules, a figure of Roman mythology. Since Hercules was the first mortal who succeeded in becoming a god, Roman sarcophagi frequently depict the "twelve labors" as a symbol of the trials that the deceased must face in order to achieve immortality. The work comes from a prestigious private collection in Rome that also collects various mythological works, period 1700. Masterful in its entirety, sculptural anatomy and perfect. The attention to detail is evident. The marble is fine, has an enviable patina. The dimensions are generous, well-proportioned and of considerable weight. The type of marble allows the work to be both inside and outside.
