Take a look at our Ganymede statue with Zeus eagle. A naked man was holding an eagle. He was looking at the eagle, and the eagle was looking at him lovingly. This man is Ganymede. Ganymede was a prince of Troy in Greek mythology. He was known for his beauty, Zeus loved him and took him away to be the cupbearer of the gods. He was the only male lover of Zeus’ lovers.
The Ganymede statue with Zeus eagle refers to the two stories of Aquarius and Aquila. Legend has it that Ganymede was looking after the sheep for his father one day when Zeus passed by in the sky and fell in love with Ganymede. Zeus disguised himself as an eagle and carried Ganymede away to Mount Olympus (some versions say that Zeus sent an eagle to capture Ganymede). This eagle is the constellation Aquila. Ganymede became a poorboy at Zeus’ side. Due to the jealousy of Hera, Zeus finally changed him into a satellite of Aquarius.
