- Title: Bernini's Hercules and Nessus
- Artist: Rappleart
This is my picture of Bernini's Hercules killing Nessus.
Hercules killed Nessus because Nessus tried to rape Hercules' wife Deianeira as Hercules crossed the river. Nessus got his revenge by tricking Deianeira into giving Hercules a shirt dipped in his poisoned blood. This lead to the death of Hercules.
