Ganymede with eagle sculpture. The sculpture is a small reproduction of the magnificent work “Ganymede with the Eagle of Jupiter,” by sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844). The original is located in the Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen.

Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844, Copenhagen, Denmark) was a prominent representative of the neoclassical period in sculpture. He has often been compared to Antonio Canova, but in fact, he embodies the style of classical Greek art more than that of the Italian artist. Thorvaldsen’s work is imbued with great sensitivity, with allegorical reliefs and sculptures of classical themes (reliefs, statues, and busts). In addition to works primarily inspired by Greek mythology, he also made portraits of important personalities and historical figures, as well as commemorative monuments. His works can be seen in many European countries, especially in the Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen, like this sculpture of Ganymede and the eagle.

In Greek mythology, Ganymede (in Greek Γανυμήδης Ganymêdês) was a divine hero originally from Troy. Being a beautiful Trojan prince, son of the eponymous Tros (or Laomedon, according to sources), Ganymede was abducted by Zeus in the form of an eagle and taken to Olympus, where he became the cupbearer of the gods. Regarding the etymology of his name, Robert Graves (The Greek Myths) proposes ganuesthai + medea, ‘rejoicing in masculinity’.

Decorating with neoclassical statues representing historical and mythological figures, such as this sculpture of Ganymede, allows us to evoke and bring to our days the greatness of ancient Greece.
