Hercules slaughters Cacus

Another of the recurring themes in the garden:

The fight of good against bad

The battle between the giants.

The battle between Hercules, mythological hero, who barehanded slaughtered Cacus.

Next to the statue is an interesting inscription which describes (in part) it's significance:

Se Rodi altier già del suo colosso

piur di quest il mio bosco ancho si gloria

e per più non poter fo quanto posso

If Rodes was the city of the 100 colusses this statue (and the whole park) could easily be yours.
