The course of knowledge is hard to stop, but may be detained for a while with this extraordinary bookend. Crafted of oxidized bronze and set in marble, it personifies Hercules, the Roman name for Heracles, the greatest hero in Greek mythology. Jacqueline Cavalcanti's sculpture exudes the strength of this legendary character, said to be the son of Zeus and the mortal Alcmena.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
Jaqueline Cavalcanti has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $550.
