~ New Art Doll Creation - #25 - May I Introduce - MeDuSa ! ~

 In Greek mythology Medusa, ("guardian, protectress"), was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair.

Gazing directly upon her would turn onlookers to stone!
In a late version of the Medusa myth, related by the Roman poet Ovid, Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, "the jealous aspiration of many suitors," priestess in Athena's temple, but when she was caught being raped by the "Lord of the Sea" Poseidon in Athena's temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa's beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone. In Ovid's telling, Perseus describes Medusa's punishment by Minerva (Athena) as just and well earned.
 Wow - either way - Medusa is definitely having a very bad hair day - humidity or not! 
I never got into to Greek Mythology - all the stories sound so miserable, doesn't it?! No happy endings!
Just be sure not to look directly into her eyes!
