its Hercule combattant Achéloüs métamorphosé en serpent by François-Joseph BOSIO made in 1845
it is located in Saint-Germain-L'auxerrois paris france

Molten bronze in 1824 by Carbonneaux
H. : 2.60 m. ; L. : 2.10 m. ; D. 0.95 m.
The plaster model was exhibited at the Salon of 1814.
The subject is taken from Ovid`s Metamorphoses: Achelous was the rival of Hercules for the love of Deianira; in combat, Achelous became a snake but was defeated by Hercules. Hercules and he said love of Deianira. Thereafter, trying to rekindle the love he bore her, Deianeira gave Hercules a tunic soaked with the blood of Nessus, which instead of being a love potion, turned out to be a burning poison.
