The Legend of Pygmalion & Galatea
In ancient Greek times, a famous sculptor named Pygmalion had resolved to live out his life as a single man. However, when he carved a statue out of ivory that was so beautiful and so perfect he fell in love with his own creation. He draped her in jewels and beautiful cloth. Consequently, at a festival, he prayed to the goddess of love, Aphrodite, that he might have the statue come to life.
When he reached home, to his amazement, he found that his wish had been fulfilled, and he proceeded to marry his love, whom he named Galatea.
