She was a gorgon punished by the circumstances. She was beautiful according to mythology - but she was raped by Poseidon, when Athena saw this she turned Medusa into a monster, whose mere sight now turns everyone into stone. The brooch shows a still beautiful Medusa, but she knows how to defend herself and use her abilities. The motif is hand-painted, etched in copper and enamelled.
