This intense and violent depiction of "Hercules Feeding Diomedes to his Horses" is full of intense images. The wild expression of the gnashing horses, pleading man to Hercules, perhaps begging him to stop, adds to the madness. And Hercules, looking majestic and powerful as ever, static with his powerful stance. This frame creates a feeling of chaos, as each corner depicting a different emotion and contrast. This painting reminds me a lot of the movie 300. Not only is it a depiction of the same era in time, however, the intensity, action, and use of color of the painting creates the same feeling of epic power.
