I've been working on this one for a long while. In my mythology class we're studying the journey of Perseus. For some reason I've always liked the medusa character, even though she gets killed. But I thought of how she would feel if she was changed by aphrodite so that whatever she looked at was turned to stone, and i wondered if she had still retained her natural beauty, save the snake hair. Also done in my western-ish style that I hardly ever use.
