The Punishment- A study of Farnese Hercules sculpture


This work of mine is a study I made on Farnese Hercules sculpture. Ancient Roman sculptures carry lot of stories and mysteries with them.This is called Farnese Hercules as it was excavated by the Farnese family. Wildly powerful figure with incredible musculature, but also the figure is exhausted exhibiting tiredness on his face. The statue is Hellenistic with taller proportions and a smaller head. The original sculpture was made by Lysippos and later reproduced by Glykon.
