Anne-Louis Girodet-Trioson Pygmalion et Galatée, 1819
Pygmalion, his offering given, prayed Before the altar, half afraid, "Vouchsafe, Oh Gods, if all things you can grant, my bride Shall be"--he dared not say my ivory girl-- "The living likeness of my ivory girl." Ovid, Metamorphoses, Book X Translated by A.D. Melville
This community is for anyone who has ever passed hours in a museum, hoping that lovely marble gaze might be turned on them. It's a place for photos and discussion of any sort within the theme of Pygmalionism. This is a brand new community, so don't worry if it looks dead for now! Join and contribute.
