To meet her gaze Picture

Medusa: seduced by Poseidon in the temple of Athena, then punished by Athena with hair of living serpents and a glance that turned men to stone.
She was later decapitated by the heroic Perseus who was heroically armed to the teeth with godly gifts (without which he'd have been heroic marble dust...)
Seductress, victim, monster, or plaything of the fickle gods, (or all of the above). You decide.
