Medusa Over the Years

The image of Medusa has been a recurring theme in my work for years. Today, I did a new version entitled, “Medusa’s Gaze”. To celebrate this event, a black snake (an adder?) about 3.5 feet long came & looked in the French doors at the side of my studio, until our cat tried to attack it. Anyhow, in honor of Medusa & the snake (& the brave but foolish cat), here are some Medusas from over the years:

    Beautiful work! Medusa 1992 is my favorite!

    I have an image of a 4th century BC, Terracotta Gorgoneion at my gallery.

      That’s a very fine piece. Thanks for sharing. Always glad to see more Gorgons.
