the Krewe of Pygmalion
The Krewe of Pygmalion is a New Orleans Carnival Club founded in 1999 by a group of Carnival veterans who wanted to provide a high-quality parade for the first week of the Mardi Gras Season. The Krewe of Pygmalion consists of male and female riders.
The Krewe of Pygmalion takes its name from the Greek legend of a Cypress king who sculpted a statue of the sea nymph Galatea. So real and beautiful was the statue to Pygmalion, he fell helplessly in love with it and spent the rest of his life adoring it.
