  • Herakles-Hercules child, naked and kneeling, holds a snake in each of his hands and strangles it. This bronze statuette with delicate modeling is a reproduction of a famous antique work after its restoration by Guglielmo della Porta and its workshop, in conditionretained until 1787. It was restored for the heirs of Cardinal della Valle in 1560, sold in 1584 to Cardinal Ferdinando de Medici along with the rest of thedella Valle-Capranica antiques collection. Two bronze replicas were cast from the original by della Porta’s workshop for the collection of antiques of Pope Pius IV in 1564, ending up in 1575 in the Farnese collections for more than two centuries. This bronze replicais producedfor amateur cabinets as we know at the end of the 16th century (ref. Pitigliano Cabinet by Van Tetrode)
