Artist's Description

The hard knock story of Medusa is heavy with torment. Medusa was not always a gorgon (female monster), or villain, at one stage she was human. She was a female of absolute beauty, or so the story goes and she fell victem to her vanity bragging that she was more beautiful than the Goddess Athena. She was pursued by many suiters but before she had the chance to marry the husband of her choice she met her defining moment while worshipping within Athenas temple(Minerva). There she encountered the Lord of the Sea Poseidon (Neptune) where she was either raped or ravaged in a forbidden love sparking the outrage of the Goddess Athena. She directed her revenge upon Medusa transforming her beautiful locks into serpents. To preclude her seeing any men who tried to court her she gave Medusa a gaze that would turn any mortal man to stone if they made eye contact. The poet Ovid felt that her reckoning had been just.

Some scholars believe that the Greek and Roman Medusa myth, as told by Ovid, expresses the vanquishing of the great goddess religions as the male gods Zeus/Jupiter and Poseidon/Neptune gained power. Others view it as expressive of the subjugation of womens bodies and enslavement of their spirit by a violent and oppressive male-oriented culture.

The name Medusa (Medha in Sanscrit, Metis in Greek and Maat in Egyptian) means “sovereign female wisdom.”
