POA

HERCULES AND THE CERYNEIAN STAG

Circa 1755

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.
