Day One hundred and thirty-five: Medusa

Finally took the time to go visit the Getty Center after 3 years of moving to So Cal. It's really a cool compound, perched on the hillside of Los Angeles. I am usually not into displayed art (especially paintings), but this medal was just so striking to me that I had to!

 

Most people think of Medusa being a monster in Perseus's myths, but she was really a victim of Athena's jealousy . . . :( And this piece sort of reflected that aspect.
