The lady on the left is called a *Walk-Over* Girl. Below is an explanation of what that means....! (It's called *The Pygmalion Effect*.)

The Pygmalion myth was a popular subject for Victorian era playwrights.
Pygmalion: A Romance in Five Acts (1912) is a play by Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw. Professor Henry Higgins makes a bet that he can train a bedraggled Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to pass for a duchess at an ambassador's garden party by teaching her impeccable speech. My Fair Lady starring Audrey Hepburn is a version of this play...made into a movie.

According to Greek mythology ~ Pygmalion is a legendary figure of Cyprus. Pygmalion was a sculptor who fell in love with a statue he had carved ~ a woman out of ivory. He was not interested in REAL women but his statue was so fair and realistic that he fell in love with it. Pygmalion made offerings to Venus and made a wish. "I sincerely wished the ivory sculpture will be changed to a real woman." When he returned home, Cupid sent by Venus kissed the ivory sculpture on the hand and she was changed to a REAL beautiful woman. A ring was put on her finger. It was Cupid’s ring which made love achieved. Venus granted his wish.
