I was charmed by the idea to represent one of the great renown
stories that have ever been written.
I deliberately escaped to seek for examples or iconographies
on this theme because I didn't want to be influenced by them,
obviously apart from a very little knowledge of some texts.
I hope to have succeeded in giving a new and, at the same
time, a classical form to Herakles's myth, extraordinary example
of supeman who, even if is mortal, is able to achieve the
most unbelievable exploits, showing the Olympus's Gods that
mankind has freed itself from their presence.
