This story is about a sculptor who sculpts the most beautiful woman in stone ever and then falls in love with her. The sculptor's name is Pygmalion; the goddess in the myth transforms the stone into a real woman and they live happily ever after. Shaw uses Professor Higgins as his Pygmalion and the Flower Girl as his "statue." He transforms her from a very common flower girl into a beautiful woman who can shine in a royal ball and never make a misstep in her manners, her speech, and the way she carries herself.
