Medusa Picture

Medusa. Because I did Medusa's Perseus... so why not?

There are many legends behind Medusa, but nearly all of them start out with Medusa being a beautiful woman, not a horrible monster. My personal favorite of how she obtained her head of snakes: Medusa was so beautiful that she rivaled the beauty of Athena. In a rage, Athena turned Medusa's hair into snakes and made her into an ugly beast whos gaze turned men into stone.

And this is why mythology is so cool. Even way back then girls were getting into cat fights. Medusa suffered from pride, and Athena from wrath. Not much has changed, eh?
Hope you like this one a little.
