Galatea

$600.00

An image of an ancient crumbling statue coming to life and observing herself. She is an ancient statue, awakened in a modern age, to find herself in a human body in a state of disrepair…yet she is at peace. The roses in her hair mirror the muscle folds and ribbons falling out of her crumbled legs, both decoratively cut. Her body is white like a marble cocoon and she is surrounded by butterflies and creeping ivy. She sits on a short mint green Greek Pedestal and she is named after Galatea…the perfect nude woman creation of a Greek sculptor come to life.
