Medusa - Greek Mythology

In Greek mythology, The Gorgons are described as incredibly ugly monsters that were to be feared immensely. The Gorgons are three sisters named Stheno, Euryale, and Medusa, who is the most famous of the three. The sisters were the daughters of Ceto and Photcys, who were both ancient Sea Gods. While Stheno and Euryale were immortal, Medusa was not.

Medusa was blessed with beautiful long hair that was much like silk in texture. Medusa was turned into a Gorgon when she declared that she was more beautiful than the Goddess Athena. She lay with the Sea God Neptune one day while she was in Athena’s temple and this outraged Athena. Athena took Medusa’s beautiful hair that she was so proud of and turned it into snakes. Athena also made it so that the many men who came to see Medusa would no longer be able to look at her for they would be turned to stone.

Perseus was ordered to cut off the head of Medusa when he was trying to rescue his mother Danae from King Polydectes. Athena and Hermes helped him and he was also given a curved sword as well as a shield of reflection to help remove her head. Perseus was successful in removing the head of Medusa and he used it as protection in battle before handing it over to Athena. After she received the head from Perseua, Athena cast the head into her shield, and there it would remain forever.
