Its ivory hardness vanishing

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.
