Nemean Lion Pendant

Brass Gold-Plated
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Handmade pendant depicting the Nemean Lion, a legendary creature in Greek mythology that ravaged the area of Nemea.

Its fur was impenetrable by the weapons of humans and hence, was unstoppable. Slaying the Nemean Lion was the first task that King Eurystheus asked of the demigod Heracles during the myth of the Labours of Heracles. Heracles tracked down the lion and tried to kill it by shooting arrows. He realised though that it was no use because of its fur. He then waited until the lion entered its lair from one of the two entrances. Heracles then blocked off the second entrance, and entered the cave as well. There, he managed to kill the lion by strangling it with his bare hands. He then tried to remove the skin from the lion but his knife was unable to cut it. After a lot of effort, Goddess Athena decided to help him, and told him to use one of the lion's claws to skin the creature. Later, Heracles made his appearance at the gates of the palace covered from head to foot in the Nemean Lion’s skin. When Eurystheus set eyes on him, his blood froze in his veins. His fear on first seeing Heracles was nothing compared to this. He fled panic-stricken to his room to escape from the sight of this "wild man", but there another horrid shock awaited him. For he had hardly managed to get his breath back when the door opened and two soldiers came in bearing the pelt of the Nemean lion, stretched out wide for Eurystheus to see. The lion's dead body was carried by the gods to the sky where it formed the Leo Constellation.
