Roark wanted the best man available for the job. Thus, his first choice was Mallory.
"And so I didn't come here to do you a favor or because I felt sorry for you or because you need a job pretty badly. I came for a simple, selfish reason-the same reason that makes a man choose the cleanest food he can find. It's a law of survival, isn't it?-to seek the best. I didn't come for your sake. I came for mine."
Mallory uses Dominique as his model, in an attempt to capture the human spirit...... a sense of exuberance.
In the end, Toohey gives Dominique the statue.
