"...in fields and by the roads, I saw on all sides men and animals--like statues--turned to flinty stone at sight of dread Medusa's visage..."
Medusa has been vilified in myth and legend throughout history. A monster justly slain by the heroic Perseus. But there is more to her story than what the myths said.
Medusa joined the temple of Athena, eager to serve, only to be turned out when she was most in need of help. Cursed and hunted, she fled Athens and everything she had ever known. This is her full story.
