Gorgons & Medusas



Gorgons and medusas are commonly regarded as terrifying and grotesque monsters.

They are one of the many female hybrid creatures that hold great power over their environment.  That is why the image of their heads are often depicted on amulets, statues, breastplates, shields and other objects that serve as protection. The name Medusa comes from an ancient Greek verb meaning "to gard or protect".

These fantastic creatures are part of our psyche.  Seeing them in our own mirror is the only way to overcome them.
