Greek ceramic plate depicting Medusa

Handmade greek ceramic plate depicting Medusa (Gorgo)

Handmade greek ceramic plate depicting Medusa (Gorgo). A lovely souvenir from Greece!

In Greek mythology, Medusa, also known as Gorgo, was one of the three monstrous Gorgons, generally described as winged human females with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Those who gazed into her eyes would turn to stone. Medusa and her sisters, Stheno and Euryale, were all children of the ancient marine deities Phorcys and his sister Ceto, chthonic monsters from an archaic world. 

 According to the Greek Mythology, Medusa was beheaded by the Greek hero Perseus, who thereafter used her head, which retained its ability to turn onlookers to stone, as a weapon. He gave it then to the goddess Athena to place it on her shield. In classical antiquity the image of the head of Medusa appeared in the evil-averting device known as the Gorgoneion.
