Medusa Picture


Im taking it in school, its so fun, but it ruins everything that has mythology because generally, its wrong, and i laugh at it...^^

This is Medusa, a woman "raped"(she knew what she was doing) by Poseidon in Athena's temple, so Athena punished her by turning her and her two sisters into gorgons, creatures that turn any MAN (not women) into stone just by looking at them, but Athena kept Medusa beautiful, while the other two turned ugly, so that men would look at her.
