This was a favorite marble sculpture of the ancient Romans, with many examples of reproductions being found in Roman palaces and gymnasiums. Farnese Hercules Statue was carved from marble by Lysippos, a Greek sculptor who lived and worked during the time of Alexander the Great.
It was called the Farnese Hercules because it was discovered in the baths of Caracalla in Rome, in 1540, it was then installed within the court yard of the Farnese Palace, Rome.
