This picture is a great illustration showing the battle between Hercules and the Nemean Lion. This was one of Hercules first big battles (after killing his two sons). Hercules would then take the lion skin and head and wear it proudly. He is shown in several paintings and sculptures with this image. Peter Paul Rubens illustrates the battle between Hercules and the Nemean Lion.
The Shepherd...I just love the Nail scars in the Lord's hand showing.....He watches over His Sheep, even if it is just one sheep
