They ran inside and jumped on Uncle Ukki's bed. Uncle Ukki was still in bed but he had a busy night.
"Uncle Ukki"said Arthur, " there are some owls in the garden and we've never seen such owls ! "
"Yes Arthur, I know, they arrived last night and I've been busy comforting them all night.These owls are not from this world you see, I'll tell you the story :
"Once upon a time, long long ago there was this man : Pygmalion.
He was a sculptor and he made a beautiful woman out of marble. She was so beautiful he fell in love with her.
So day after day he went to the temple of Venus, begging her to give him a woman as beautiful as his sculpture.
After a while Venus came to his house and turned the statue into a real woman.
Pygmalion was of course very happy and he married his Galatea ( that was the name he gave her) .
But Venus didn't know that Pygmalion overheard the spell she used to transform the statue and every time he created a sculpture he used the spell to give it life.
After a while Venus found out and because of the possible danger ( if Pygmalion ever should have a bad mood he could create a monster ) she banned him to another world.
He is still creating and giving life to his sculptures and they are kept in his world by a invisible chain.
But every now and then the creatures find a way to escape and when they arrive in our world the chain is getting visible.
So, did you notice the little chain under their wing?
These are Pygmalion's owls, he called them Athene Pygmalion and they come from that other world."" WOW Uncle Ukki, this is a great story! I hope we see more of Pygmalion's creatures someday ! "
