Greek Goddess Hebe Image
HEBE (pronounced HEE-bee) is the Greek Goddess of youth. She is the daughter of Zeus and Hera, and served as cupbearer of the Gods until she was replaced by the Trojan youth Ganymede. After that, Ganymede held the cups while Hebe poured the nectar of immortality into them. During the Trojan war, Ganymede was too distressed to perform his job, so Hebe took the role back until the end of the war. She gave up the job permanently when she married Herakles. When Herakles had finished the twelve labors set on him, he was rewarded with immortality and godhood, and his marriage to Hebe, eternal youth, gave him that immortality. Epithets for Hebe include HEBE JUNONIA (daughter of Juno [Hera]), HEBE BASILEIA (princess), and HEBE KALLISTRAGALOS (of fair ankles), and she was also known as GANYMEDA (gladdening princess) or DIA (divine).

Yama

Yama Cover
Yama, also known as Yamaraja in India, Shinje in Tibet, Yamano in South Korea, Yanluowang or simply Yan in China, and Enma Dai-O in Japan, is the lord of death, first recorded in the Vedas. The name Yanluo is a shortened Chinese transliteration of the Sanskrit term Yama Raja, or "King Yama". Enma Dai-O is a further transliteration, meaning "Great King Yama", where Enma means Yama, Enma-O means Yama Raja and Enma Dai-O would be equivalent to Yama Maharaja. Yama belongs to an early stratum of Vedic mythology. In Vedic tradition Yama was considered to have been the first mortal who died and espied the way to the celestial abodes, and in virtue of precedence he became the ruler of the departed. Yama's name can be interpreted to mean "twin", and in some myths he is paired with a twin sister Yami.

According to the popular version of the mythological origins of Yama (the god of death), a holy man was once told that if he spent fifty years living in deep meditation in a cave, he would reach enlightenment. On the night of the twenty-ninth day of the eleventh month of the forty-ninth year, two robbers entered his cave with a stolen bull whose head they proceeded to cut off. When they realized that the hermit had witnessed their act, they decided to kill him. He begged them to spare his life, explaining that in a few minutes he would reach enlightenment and that all his efforts would be lost if they killed him before the expiration of the fifty years. The thieves ignored his request and cut off his head. Immediately, he assumed the ferocious form of Yama and put the bull's head on his own headless body. He then killed the two robbers and drank their blood from cups made from their skulls. In his fury, he threatened to destroy the entire population of Tibet. The Tibetan people appealed to the deity Manjushri (the Bodhisattva of wisdom), to protect them from Yama. Manjushri then had to assume the form of Yamantaka, defeating Yama, and turning him into a protector of Buddhism, in order to save the people.

With a dark body lunging wildly across the back of his bull mount, wearing a profusion of macabre jewelry, Yama here has a buffalo's head and waves a skull-headed club. He glares with puffed-up snouts straight at the viewer.

The background aureole coils are sculpted with much grace and expression of movement. The flames curl to one side and leap out at the other. This transverse motion enhances the dynamic body posture of the deity, lending to it vitality and vigor.
