    My latest scavenge in the local charity shops brought back this- a little plaster statue of a classical lady. Having the famous Venus de Milo already I of course have a penchant for these classical ladies which she definitely is so I took her for the very reasonable price of €6 (£5.42/$7.08)
    No markings at all on her and no bumps and scratches anywhere, though she is rather smooth and weighty (!) so I guess she's plaster, the only mystery being what Grecian/Roman goddess she might depict? She carries a water jug and some kind of water dish? Anyone have any ideas as to what goddess she might be?
    Thanks for looking!!!!

      She is such a beauty Lauren, from every angle & love that fancy hairdo. I believe she is Hebe the goddess of youth, daughter of Zeus

      Hera, goddess of marriage.

      Hera was Hebe's mother. Look at other statues of Hebe Lauren, and read the wiki info, she bears the cup of ambrosia to offer the gods to maintain youth. I will not argue the opinion of others on this site you can judge for yourself, she's very lovely and a very well done version

      Thanks Golgatha but I'm certain this is Hebe...

      I Googled her yesterday when you mentioned her and yes I do think with the presence of the cup and jug alone she is Hebe- thanks for that! ;D
