Italia, Venecia

Beautiful mythological tile in fine Istrian marble depicting Hercules killing the Nemean lion.
Coming from a prestigious private Venice collection of mythological works and sculptures.

The Lion of Nemea is a character from Greek mythology; it tormented the people of Nemea and its fur was impenetrable by weapons, making it immune to iron, bronze or stone weapons. It could only be defeated in a fight with bare hands and subdued by a human being.
The beast was hunted and killed by Heracles (in Latin Hercules), who skinned the lion and transformed its hard skin into a fur coat for himself, thus obtaining an invincible armour against the dangers he would face. The Nemean lion was placed by Zeus among the signs of the zodiac, where he formed the constellation of the Lion.

A Latin engraving at the top gives the work its title.
Beautiful care and definition of anatomy and details.
A truly valuable work and a lot of high-quality workmanship.
Medium-sized, proportioned and of moderate weight.
Suitable to be hanged on the wall, can be displayed both indoors or placed on top of a solid base.
Fine grain and patina of the marble.
It is in very good overall condition, intact.
It will be delivered in a wooden crate with proper packaging.
Affordable, safe and tracked shipping worldwide.
The item is also available for pickup at our warehouse.
