A monumental bronze statue representing Hercules who must kill the Stymphalian birds—one of the twelve labors imposed to him as a punishment for the murder of his wife and children. French sculptor Emile-Antoine Bourdelle (1861–1929) sculpted this statue in 1909 and gave the nude figure a heroic appearance that expresses enormous energy and power. The fog effect was added digitally to isolate the silhouette. (Captured at the Middelheim Open Air Sculpture Museum, Antwerp, August 2018.)
