Lion Torc Extra Heavy Weight
The first labor for the Greek hero Heracles was to rid the Nemean plain of the wild, enormous and extremely ferocious beast known as the Nemean Lion. Heracles set out to find the monster, which roamed the land of Argolis. Armed with his bow and arrows, and his club. Hunting through the Nemean forest trying to find the lions lair, he suddenly stopped in his tracks when he heard a fearsome roar. Heracles turned and saw the huge lion rushing toward him. Quick as a flash Heracles drew his bow and released an arrow, but it failed to harm the lion; the skin of this creature could not be penetrated by even the sharpest of points. The lion pounced, but Heracles was ready, smashing his heavy club into the oncoming monster, stunning it. Realizing no weapon could kill this monster, Heracles wrapped his great arms around the lions neck and strangled it to death. Once the huge monster was dead Heracles skinned the beast and threw its pelt over himself as a cloak, as both trophy and powerful armor.
