Take a look at the Hygieia statue. Hygieia is a goddess in Greek and Roman mythology. Hygieia is the goddess of health, cleanliness and hygiene. Her name is the source of the word “hygiene”. Hygieia is associated with the Greek god of medicine Asclepius, son of the Olympian god Apollo. Hygieia is most often referred to as the daughter of Asclepius and his wife Epione. Hygieia and her four sisters each perform an aspect of Apollo’s art: Hygieia (Health, Cleanliness and Hygiene). Panacea (panacea). Iaso (recovery from illness); Aceso (healing process); And Aglaia (beauty, splendor, glory, magnificence and decoration).

Hygieia — Goddess of health and spiritual healer. She was venerated in ancient Greece and Rome, and even now the goddess Hygia remains a symbolic figure. The goddess of beauty with grapes is always kept by a snake. Her name has its own Greek adjective Hygieia, which can be translated as “Human health is good. This symbolism is recaptured by the statue of the Greek goddess Hygieia, depicting a beautiful young woman in Greek costume. She is holding a snake in her hand.

The worship of Hygieia is closely related to that of Asclepius. While Asclepius was more directly related to healing, she was concerned with preventing disease and staying healthy. In the second century AD, the famous traveler Pausanias provided an account based on his sightings in Greece. In his encyclopedic Description of Greece, written circa 160 to 174 AD, Pausanias describes encountering the statues of Asclepius and Hygieia at Tegea. In addition to the statues representing the two figures, Hygieia can also be seen combined in the worship of Asclepius in numerous medical images on ancient Greek and Roman coins. Hygieia’s close relationship with Asclepius indicates her importance in Asclepius’ cult. If you like the Hygieia statue, welcome to contact us.
