It's time to express my love for sculptures - again. This time it's Hercules, standing in France's Vaux-le-Vicomte (by André Le Nôtre, with Le Brun and Le Vau).
I could compare 'him' to Michelangelo's David or maybe even to Belvedere Apollo, who knows.*
I find it interesting that Hercules looks different when 'he' is examined from different angles from the back. Above 'he' looks a bit 'tired', may I say, 'elder'...*
but here he looks like a Greek god (after all, he was almost one), very captivating.
And here he is, from afar.*
