This sculpture is huge. I recommend it just for the "What the heck is it doing here, of all places?" factor.

Bronze Hercules, Peace Dude

Hercules is in front of the Gold and Diamond store on Ulmerton Road. It was a busy parking lot. Hercules stands right in front of the store. I am not sure how he relates to jewelry.

He's the demigod Hercules, unchained -- but his weakness is bling.
