Medusa is one of the most famous mythical beings (or monsters for some people) in Greek mythology. People perceive her as a woman who has snakes as her hair with a power of turning people into stone by looking into their eyes.
Medusa is categorized as a Gorgon, which could roughly means monster, but only she’s the mortal one. In Ovid’s myths, Medusa comes to be a monster that she is because she’s cursed by Athena. What make the Goddess of Wisdom becomes very angry is that Medusa gets raped by Poseidon in her own temple. It is pretty devastating to see that, according to Ovid, Medusa becomes a victim again and again.
