This small bronze figure by Antonio Averlino, "Il Filarete", represents the classical hero Hector as a mirror image of the perfect Renaissance gentleman. It may be a tribute to Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan. Such bronzes were highly prized in Renaissance Italy, and several ended up in the royal Spanish collections of Charles V and Philip II.
