Description

Using high quality Santorini marble, one of the highest quality in the world from Greece, I turned into a tribute stone dedicated to the famous Medusa of Greek lore (read brief description below). On the stone is a symbol for her and her name in Greek. Only the engraving was painted and sealed to preserve the texture and natural sparkle of the marble.

One of the most popular Beings of Greek Mythology, Medusa was a beautiful maiden with golden hair. She vowed to be celibate her entire life as a priestess of Athena until she fell in love with Poseidon.

She went against her vow and married him.

For this Athena punished her hideously. She turned Medusa into an ugly creature by making her eyes bloodshot and raging and her face haglike. The once lovely hair was morphed into poisonous, dangerous snakes. Her pure white milky skin turned a scary green hue. From then on she roamed, shamed, shunned and loathed by everyone. Although Some believe this was not a curse for Medusa but actually carried Benevolent reasons for her transformation.

Thence, by Athena’s curse anyone she looked upon turned to stone.
