Veronese Design Cast Bronze Resin Medusa Head Figure on Plinth Bust Sculpture


In Greek mythology Medusa  was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as a winged human female with a hideous face and living venomous
snakes in place of hair. Gazers on her face would turn to stone. Medusa was beheaded by the hero Perseus, who thereafter used her head, which retained its
ability to turn onlookers to stone, as a weapon  until he gave it to the goddess Athena to place on her shield. In classical antiquity the image of the head of Medusa appeared in the evil-averting device known as the Gorgoneion.
