This cameo represents The Greek hero, Heracles or Hercules in roman. Son of Zeus and mortal Alcmere. This cameo represents his 7th labor where he captured the Cretan Bull. He is depicted with his olive-wood club. In the background his the two-headed god Janus, God of beginnings and transitions.
Solid yellow bronze reproduction of a 17th c. cameo.
The cameo is 20 mm x 24 mm.
I make my own molds and do not do casting so each piece is individually made and signed in the back.
The ring is handmade the old fashion way.
It is wire wrapped as it was in the antiquity with bronze wire coated and a thin anti-tarnish layer.
Rings size up to 7 use a thin wire.
Rings size 8 and above use a thicker wire.
