Those who are in love are sometimes also in love with their projections. Long before Freud, Ovid told of the sculptor Pygmalion falling for his perfect statue of a woman. Goddess Venus makes them come alive. Both great-granddaughters will later fall in love with their own father and father the beautiful Adonis with him.
