Medusa, like her sisters, Stheno and Euryale, is one of the three Gorgons and a daughter of the sea gods Keto and Phorkys. Representations of the Gorgons vary. However, they are usually described as vicious, winged maidens with fangs, brazen claws and a girdle of serpents. Medusa was the most beautiful Gorgon, but was cursed by the angry goddess Athena. Since then she wore snakes for hair and petrified anyone who caught sight of her.

The Medusa myth

The siblings Keto and Phorkys fathered three daughters together, the Gorgons. One of them was Medusa, the only one of the three sisters who was mortal in nature. Originally, the Gorgons were considered deformed and misshapen in ancient Greek depictions, but were further developed in the Late Classical period.

Thereafter, Medusa was usually depicted as a stunning, beguiling beauty, with whom even the sea god Poseidon fell in love. One day, however, Athena observed one of the romantic encounters between Medusa and Poseidon, which enraged her so much that she cursed the Gorgo and transformed her into a monster.

It is this transformation that we also associate with Medusa today: Serpents adorning her head instead of hair, dangerous fangs gaping from her mouth, skin resembling scaly armour and glowing, glittering eyes and a tongue hanging out of her mouth. Furthermore, Medusa was cursed from that moment on, as no man could bear the sight of her and instantly turned to stone when the Gorgo's gaze met him.
