The legend of Pygmalion is one of the most inspiring thing to me. A sculptor, carving an ivory statue that represent his ideal of womanhood and then falls in love with his own creation. Hearing his prayers, the goddess Venus brings the statue to life, changing it into a loving woman. Beside the romanticism of the mythological story, and my personal focus on Love and sexual desire, I value the idea that any piece of Art is loaded with emotions which can go straight to your heart.
