Hebe is the goddess of youth, and the daughter of Zeus and Greek goddess Hera. She poured the nectar of the gods on the Olympus until Ganymede replaced her. Hebe also prepared Ares' bath, and helped the goddess Hera to her chariot. After Hercules became a god, he married her. The Romans called her Juventas, which means "youth", as in "the goddess of youth". She was portrayed as a young woman wearing a sleeveless dress, and on various vases she is shown as the cup bearer of the gods, or as the bride of Hercules. The sheer size and magnitude of this statue is equal to its craftmanship and authenticity.
