Medusa

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Mette Madsen

I was inspired by the Greek mythology of Medusa. Medusa, originally a beautiful young woman whose crowning glory was her magnificent long hair, was desired and courted by many suitors. Yet before she could be betrothed to a husband, Poseidon found her worshipping in the temple of Athena and ravished her. Athena was outraged at her sacred temple being violated, and punished Medusa by turning her beautiful tresses into snakes and giving her the destructive power to turn anyone who looked directly at her into stone.
