This is a replica of a famous statue from Italy. It is Hercules. He is vanquishing  somebody whose name escapes me. His foe is at his knees, with Hercules domineering over him. You can see Hercule’s mighty club  is hovering over the fellow’s head ready to bop him senseless.

For some reason, Someone doesn’t like this statue.  I am forced to keep it in the back room. We have to cover it up when relatives visit. I point out it is high Renaissance art, but to no avail.

Oh well there is no accounting for taste !
