皮格马利翁 Pygmalion

Pygmalion,King of Cyprus,was a famous sculptor.He made an ivory image of a woman so lovely that he fell in love with it.Every day he tried to make Galatea up in gold and purple,for that was the name he had given to this mistress of his heart.He embraced and kissed it,but it remained statue.In despair he went to Aphrodite's shrine for help.Offering rich sacrifice and sending up a passionate prayer,he begged the goddess to give him a wife as graceful as Galatea.Back home,he went straight up to the statue. Even as he gazed at it a change came over it. A faint color appeared on its cheeks, a gleam shone from its eyes and its lips opened into a sweet smile. Pygmalion stood speechless when Galatea began to move towards him. She was simple and sweet and alive!Soon the room was ringing with her sliver voice.The work of his own hands became his wife.

塞浦路斯的国王皮格马利翁是一个著名的雕刻家。他用象牙雕刻了一个美丽可爱的女人,并且爱上了她。他为心爱的女神取名为盖拉蒂,每天都会给盖拉蒂穿上金紫相间的衣袍。他对雕像又亲又抱,但她仍是一尊雕像。绝望之下,他跑去阿佛洛狄忒的神殿求助。他奉上丰厚的祭祀品,并且深情地祷告,祈求女神陛下赐予他像盖拉蒂一样优雅的妻子。回到家后他直奔雕像。在他的凝视下,雕像开始变化。一抹颜色出现在雕像的脸颊,一束光线从她眼中射出,她的嘴唇荡出可爱的微笑。当盖拉蒂开始朝他走来时,皮格马利翁呆住了,说不出话来。她单纯、温柔、充满活力!房间里响起了她如银铃般的声音。他自己的作品变成了他的妻子。
