Galatea Bio

I am Galatea. Galatea means "she who is white as milk". In the 18th century, Pygmalion created me with his own hands in a statue form. But then he fell madly in love with me and my ivory self. He then prayed to the gods asking to bring me to life so we could live happily together.The Goddess Venus, answered his prayers and brought me to life and we were united into marriage.


  1. Within this bio I liked how you defined what your name meant. Also, the background information added was on task and interesting.

  2. It was not Goddess Venus, but Goddess Aphrodite who brought the statue of Galatea to life, in answer to the prayer by Pygmalion, the creator of the statue of Galatea.
    It's a story from Greek mythology. and Aphrodite is the Goddess of Love and Beauty in Greek mythology.
    Venus is the Goddess of Love from Roman mythology.
