A pottery model of Hercules, a big thee-year old Yorkshire boar, who was brought to Czechoslovakia to help restore the pig population after World War II. Standing on wooden plinth.

Shows lovely detail, and conveys a real sense of the character of Hercules.

There are inscriptions in Czechoslovakian to both sides of the base. They seem to indicate that Hercules duties were performed at the state owned agricultural school in Tabor.
