This picture is a great illustration showing the battle between Hercules and the Nemean Lion. This was one of Hercules first big battles (after killing his two sons). Hercules would then take the lion skin and head and wear it proudly. He is shown in several paintings and sculptures with this image. Peter Paul Rubens illustrates the battle between Hercules and the Nemean Lion.

The Nemean Lion

Hercules Fighting the Nemean Lion, Peter Paul Rubens: Badass work.I only wish he had painted Hercules on the cat's back, sinking in a Rear-naked instead of a Guillotine.

Golden Lion (Beast)(Large) – The pelt of the Golden Lion is legendary, many heroes try to find one and test themselves by killing one of these golden skinned lions, but there is a catch, no weapon can pierce the skin of these creatures and the only way to kill one is to strangle it or to pierce their eyes or maws, and so only the most powerful warriors or skilled rangers make a chance against them. These are the Nemean Lions from legends and their manes are covered with arrows. (Greek)
