About The Artwork

Pigmalione era uno scultore che non aveva mai trovato una donna degna del suo amore. Afrodite ebbe pietà di lui e decise si mostrargli le meraviglie dell'amore. Un giorno, Pigmalione venne ispirato da un sogno di Afrodite a scolpire dall'avorio una donna che assomigliasse all'immagine della dea e la chiamò Galatea. Egli si innamorò della statua e decise che non poteva vivere senza di essa. Pregò Afrodite, che eseguì la parte finale del suo piano e diede vita alla squisita scultura. Pigmalione amò Galatea e i due si sposarono. Pygmalion was a sculptor who had never found a woman worthy of his love. Aphrodite took pity on him and decided to show him the wonders of love. One day, Pygmalion was inspired by a dream of Aphrodite to make a woman out of ivory resembling her image, and he called her Galatea. He fell in love with the statue and decided he could not live without her. He prayed to Aphrodite, who carried out the final phase of her plan and brought the exquisite sculpture to life. Pygmalion loved Galatea and they were soon married.
