A Missing Piece

Hebe was cupbearer to the gods. The statue was damaged in the 1950s, and then lost.
She was recently discovered and restored. Here she lies in storage.

Maybe it's just me, but how do you lose a statue?

In this case, the statue was broken and put into storage awaiting repair, then forgotten. When the statue was discovered again (fifty years later), it was in many, many pieces. It probably didn't look much like a statue at all.
