The Baleful Head Tile Picture

This beautiful painting, "The Baleful Head" by Edward Burne-Jones (1988), is but one in a series of the "Perseus Cycle." The series is based on a poem by William Morris, who in turn based his work on the Greek myth. In this painting Perseus holds high the head of Medusa the Gorgon and shows the reflection to Andromeda--looking straight at Medusa's face turns one into stone.
