People have enjoyed the story of Pygmalion for thousands of years. Artists have painted pictures about it. An English writer named George Bernard Shaw wrote a play about it. Maybe you even saw the movie that was made from the play. It was called My Fair Lady.
Here, then, is the original version. It's the story of a handsome and talented young sculptor who was also a snob! His name was Pygmalion. And he was especially snobby about women! "Who needs them?" he would say. "I love my art. And that is enough for me!"
But one day Pygmalion started to work on a statue that would put him in his place. It was more beautiful than any statue he had ever made. And before he knew what was happening, he fell in love with it. Head over heels in love with a piece of cold stone! Pygmalion's story will have you chuckling as he tries to pretend that his statue is real.
Pygmalion finally intercedes with Venus for help.
