DETAIL

medusa

I missed her so much I had to paint her again, but this time only her head.
I still maintain that Medusa was *not* a monster but a pretty girl, probably a priestess of the Goddess who always carried a snake with her. The new male religion of gods and godesses eliminated the old ways, and Medusa lost her head.
To my male visitors: have you never felt pertified when you look into the eyes of a beautiful girl?
