Medusa's Head Picture

Another piece i did in high school and yet another piece combining mediums. The head was done in gray scale pastels and the flames around it were done in paint (the type of which i have long since forgotten) I drew it from a picture depicting a statue in Europe somewhere and the head was only just a part of it. As i recall someone was holding the head up. Sorry about my lack of knowledge on the subject but i was never too educated in mythology.
