Description
Vintage engraving by Albrech Durer, showing Hercules at the Crossroad, 1498. Hercules is faced with a decision about his future between Voluptas (Pleasure), who tries to lure him into a life of luxury, and Virtue, who describes the moral satisfaction gained by hardship and gallantry. Hercules wisely opts for Virtue and goes on to kill the Nemean lion.
