An amazing museum reproduction of the famous Gorgon Medusa.
On display in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Gallery 172
The monumentality of this fragment belies its size, and the powerful Medusa head illustrates that the distinction between sculpture and the decorative arts cannot always be clearly drawn. This head, with its agonized expression, may have been part of a clock with the figures of Perseus and his bride, Andromeda. The Greek hero slew the gorgon Medusa and afterward saved Andromeda from a sea monster.
