Cerberus appears in Greek literature, art, and pottery, often in varying forms. Some poets and artists give the dog a lion’s feet or serpents around its neck, but Cerberus is always depicted as a guardian of the underworld. The dog appears in works by Plato, Dante, and Shakespeare, among others, cementing its place in the realm of mythology.
Silver-studded red collars contrast with the black fur of Cerberus, creating a sleek look to this guard dog of Hades. The figure is 4.75 inches long, about the same as a DVD.
