Hercules and Diomedes Bonded Marble Statue
By Vincenzo de’ Rossi (1525-1587), 1550, Palazzo Vecchio, Florence
A Renaissance image celebrating the strength and beauty of the human form, this museum-quality sculpture depicts one of the twelve mythic labors of Hercules. The artist, a student of Michelangelo, was commissioned to sculpt the myth in which Hercules throws Diomedes to his own man-eating mares. Cast in bonded natural marble, each detail is finished with care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great detail The artist has taken great care and pride in creating this statue, you can see the anger and determination in Hercules and Diomedes faces. I will continue to purchase pieces of artwork from Toscano because of the realistic detail. January 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this statue I've always loved this statue. My only regret about it is that I didn't buy it when Toscano offered it in a larger size. June 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classical Test of good verses evil This bonded marble statue displayed in your home will convey your appreciation of a classic depiction of good triumphing over evil. Hercules and Diomedes locked in a life and death struggle from which, only good will emerge victorious. The statue reflects a masculine good taste and suggests the owner's knowledge of classical mythology as well as an understanding of Grecian ideals. August 5, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great detail! Well made. All the "Exellent's" above say it best Years ago I switched from Greco-Roman to Egyptian. I have been eyeing this piece for a long time fearing the picture would not do justice to the piece itself. I was wrong. I'm gld I made this exception. June 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful detail - right down to Diomedes fighting 'dirty'! I love the great detail in these bonded marble statues - just like the real thing - only smaller. This work just adds so much to our collection, April 29, 2013
