  1. The Pygmalion effect. When Pygmalion made an ivory sculpture of the girl Galatea, he fell madly in love with her.

    The sculptor gave her gifts, dressed her in expensive clothes, but the statue was still an inanimate object. Once, during a festival dedicated to Aphrodite, Pygmalion, in his appeal to the goddess, begged for a wife as beautiful as his sculpture. Aphrodite was moved by such love, as a result of which she revived the statue, which became Pygmalion's wife.
