Very good condition

Medusa, the allegorical representation of nature and demon in the form of woman. Enigmatic artwork that became the feminine ideal of the beginning of the century.

This is a reproduction with many details, like the headband with jewels and the long earrings. The artwork is signed at the back side (see detailed pictures).
Unlike her sisters Euryale and Stheno Medusastarted off as a gorgeously beautiful woman, but she was turned into Gorgonzola by a jealous Athena.

She was now so horribly ugly that anyone who saw her face turned instantly to stone. But, being mortal, Medusa was killable. So Perseus found it quite easy to cut off her head and use it to frighten people to death.

From her blood sprang Pegasus the Wonder Horse. Which Perseus promptly stole and used to make his escape.

Size: ca 22 cm.
Material: resin bronze finish
Very good condition.
