They are known for their slender heads with detailed face carvings. They can have a stubborn expression due to wrinkled eyebrows and numerous sharp wrinkles. The whole body is perfectly anatomically hand-carved to a professional standard. This Hercules comes from the private collection of Rudolf Helebrant.
