Heracles and Lion plaque or Samson Killing the Lion (Hercules and the Lion) plaque. Samson, is the third to last of the Judges of the ancient Children of Israel mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, the Tanakh. He is described in the Book of Judges chapters 13 to 16. Samson is something of a Herculean figure, utilizing massive strength to combat his enemies and perform heroic feats unachievable by ordinary men: wrestling a lion, slaying an entire army with nothing more than a donkey’s jawbone, and tearing down an entire building. Samson lived when God was punishing the Israelites by giving them “into the hand of the Philistines”. Comes with a hook in the back for easy wall hanging.
Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.
