Medusa Picture

In Greek mythology Medusa (Greek: Μέδουσα (M├ędousa), "guardian, protectress") was a Gorgon, a chthonic monster, and a daughter of Phorcys and Ceto.In a late version of the Medusa myth, related by the Roman poet Ovid (Metamorphoses 4.770), Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, "the jealous aspiration of many suitors," priestess in Athena's temple, but when she and the "Lord of the Sea" Poseidon lay together in Athena's temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa's beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone.
