HERCULES AND THE CERYNEIAN STAG
Height: 8 ½ in. (21.6 cm)
The figure, which appears to be unique, was based on an engraving by Bernard Picart (1663-1733) after an original by Louis Cheron.
The third labour of Hercules was to capture the Keryneian Hind, a deer belonging to Artemis, which had golden antlers and hooves of bronze.
