Artist's Description

In my re-imagining of the Greek myth, Pygmalion was a mermalien sculptor who carved a woman out of stone. After seeing the Domiceti prostituting themselves, he no longer showed an interest in women, but his sculpture of Galatea was so realistic that he fell in love with it. He offered the statue gifts and even prayed to Venus, until she finally took pity on him and brought the statue to life, as you see her depicted here, in transition. That’s Binky, the trained circus chick, perched on the sculptor’s shoulder.
