Hercules. One of the tales of Hercules is that he killed a lion, skinned it, and wore the skin as a cloak. You can see the lion's mouth as the hood on top of Hercules' head, and the lion's two forearms are tied together on Hercules' chest. You can see the lion's paws in one of the ties hanging down from the knot. It's a common depiction of Hercules to see him wearing a lion skin cloak.

Indeed, this is the "greek mythology sleeve done by Anja Ferencic" that depicts Herakles wearing the impenetrable skin of the Nemean Lion he strangled and flayed during his first labour.

Yeah, you can see what looks like Medusa and Pegasus nearby.
