Description
Statue of Ganymede and Jupiters Eagle made by Thorvaldsen. Bertel Thorvaldsen was born in Copenhagen on 19 November 1770 and died in Copenhagen on 24 March 1844.
In Greek mythology, Ganymede, or Ganymedes was a divine hero whose homeland was the Troad. He was a Trojan prince, son of eponymous king Tros of Dardania, and of Callirrhoe. Ganymede was the most handsome among mortals, by reason of which he was abducted to serve as cupbearer to the gods and as Zeus' beloved. In poetry, Ganymede was a symbol for the ideally beautiful youth and also for homosexual love, sometimes contrasted with Helen of Troy in the role of heterosexuality.
