The famous bronze Hercules statue:
Hercules has been fighting frequently throughout his life, and all his achievements are remarkable, so the author uniquely selected the plot of his break to express this great hero. The human body in the statue is curved, with the left leg supporting the weight of the body, the left arm leaning on the pillar, and the right arm backing behind the body. This kind of changeable posture formed a more relaxed atmosphere. Although the characters are in a relaxed state, they are still extremely strong, and the seemingly calm body seems to contain tremendous power. The portrayal of the muscles in Hercules statue is very exaggerated. Both the volume of the muscles and the sense of power it exhibits have reached a saturated state, which makes people feel as if they can burst out powerful energy at any time. The processing of the shape is not chaotic because of the exaggeration of the muscles, but the front and side turns are distinct, forming a solid and powerful overall shape. From the Hercules statue, we can also see Lisips’s human aesthetic view that the length of the head is one-eighth of the body. This proportion has a profound impact on later sculpture art.

Creation of ancient Greek mythological characters:
The ancient Greeks believed that gods and men had sympathy with the same sex. In the classical period, the theme of sculpture creation was mainly gods, and gods were idealized people. God’s body is healthier than man, his will is stronger than man, and his wisdom is higher than man. Therefore, the mythical images of Venus, Hermes, Athena, and Hercules statue in the sculptures are all used to extol the real people. “The perfect body is blessed by God” and the concept of ideal beauty influences the style of sculpture creation. During the Hippo War, the Parthenon was burned down in a large area. When Phidias rebuilt the temple, he created a large number of statues and sculptures. Such as the statues of Athena and Olympia in the temple. For example, the original “Athena” is a huge, 11-meter-high wooden head. The goddess wears armor made of gold, the skin is made of ivory, and the eyes are made of gems. There is also Hercules statue, which also shows the strength of men’s muscles. In addition, the ancient Greeks were proud of sports. In addition to satisfying the admiration and love of sports, the strong physique also served to resist the constant wars between the city-states.
