The forerunner of the dumbbell, found in ancient Greece, was used as a lifting weight made of stone. Hercule designed by Charlotte Juillard is reminiscent of this object which transcends functionality in favor of aesthetical symbolism. The piece becomes a narrative object used also as a paperweight on your desk, or for the genuine esthete as a luxury dumbbell. One is made of marble and metal, the other of gray stone and metal.
