this image is a follow on from the other madusa heartbrake image and came around after finishing the first and decideing that there where ways i could improve it and show madusa saddness.
Out of all the greek myths madusa is the one i come back to time and time again i feel that she realy had bad luck, she was the high pristess of Athrodietie and when her love said she was more beautyful than the goddess herself, she and her sister where cursed, but i can find no recold of anything happening to him.
She then has to spend the rest of her life as a monster unable to look at any living thing or she will turn it to stone, not an easy thing for anyone to live with if you think about it.
The image of the half women half snake also has relevants in other faiths, Lilith the women made from clay like adam before Eve was made from his rib, is part of Jewish tradition and to many the first witch, part of this image maybe due to her seeking advice from the snake in the garden of Edan, whilst she has also gone on to be shown with hores and wings and more like a demon, than a women who would not be comarnded by a man who was her equal

    I think this might be my favorite so far. It very vibrant, and has a very strong emotional component to it. I also love the way you connected Medusa and Lilith!!!

    This is exactly the way I feel about Medusa, too – I have actually just done 2 versions of her lately … and I agree with Tammy, connecting her to Lilith is very fitting. :-)) Thank you!

  • Thank you, they say history is writen by the victors, i feel she was wronged thank again for the nice words Cherrie
