Small Galatea

Small Galatea

from 1,700.00

The story of the love between Acis and the sea-nymph Galatea appears in Ovid's Metamorphoses; theirs is a story of love and destructive jealousy. The jealous Cyclops Polyphemus, who also loves Galatea, finds them embracing and crushes Acis with a boulder.   Galatea saves Acis by changing him into an immortal river spirit.  This story has inspired many works of art through the centuries, namely the operatic contata, Aci, Galatea e Polifemo (1708), by George Frideric Handel.
