This is my newest painting of the goddess Aphrodite giving life to the statue Galatea, Pygmalion’s creation and great love. Beeing moved by the artist’s feelings for his own creation Aphrodite turned Galatea into a living woman so Pygmalion could marry her. I thing this myth represents me be cause like Pygmalion did I’ve always been in love with the women I use to draw and paint even if they are just creations of my mind and I wish they were real.
This is what you can see almost everywhere in Bucharest: dogs free on the streets, rats, bad insects such as flyes and mosquitoes, shit and garbage. Here in Romania when someone tries to get rid of these dirty dogs all the animal rights organisations prevent him for taking the dog from the streets. Here in Romania dogs are protected by law and have more rights than humans. There were people killed by dogs and noone has ever did anything but if someone kills or beats a dog then he is put in prison for this, even if the dog was agresive.
