Street Galatea

I usually don’t like pictures that mix color and black and white. Seems to me like a rather cheap trick to catch the eye. But in this case it seemed fitting.

This is no montage. Galatea is the statue that Pygmalion created and brought to life. Pygmalion worked in ivory; this girl is cardboard.

Here is the classic painting by Gérôme.
