In Greek mythology, Medusa is known as one of three mermaids. Of the three, Medusa was the only mortal. Also referred to as “Gorlo” meaning wild eyes. One version of this mythical creature is that Medusa was originally a beautiful Athenian Priestess who was raped by Poseidon, disguised as a horse, in the sacred sanctuary of Athena. Unable to control her anger or to confront Poseidon, it is said that she was transformed into Medusa, a monstrous unattractive women with snakes for hair. Her ugliness was such that anyone who laid eyes on Medusa would turn to stone.
Eventually killed by Perseus with the help of the goddess Athena, the image of Medusa’s head was placed on a shield because even in death it was believed that her wild gaze would turn anyone who laid eyes on her into stone.
