Greek Mythology - Medusa Picture

A part of my final project for 2D design class, fall 2007 semester, which was a 2x3-inch book about different influences on Greek Mythology, as well as the influences it's had on the world.

This is Medusa. Her entry read:

"Medusa was once a beautiful nymph, until she was forcibly unioned with Poseidon within Athena's temple. Athena, upset at this desecration, transformed Medusa's hair into serpents, and made her face so terrible that its influence would turn a man to stone."
