Hebe, the Greek goddess of youth, personifies eternal spring and vitality in Greek mythology. Daughter of Zeus and Hera, she was tasked with serving nectar and ambrosia to the gods on Mount Olympus. Hebe married Heracles after his ascent to Olympus, transformed into a god.
The cult of Hebe developed in various sanctuaries in ancient Greece, and in Rome, she was revered under the name Juventus or Juventas. This goddess is represented as a young woman holding a cup or vase, carrying the nectar of the gods. Hebe reminds us of inner youth and the eternal renewal reflected in the cycles of nature and the arrival of spring every year.
