The Mother of All Monsters

Echidna was a Greek mythological character who gave birth to monsters prominent in many stories. Included in the list are Cerberus, The Gorgons and The Sphinx.

Although she plays an important role - she is not often depicted in art. Hesiod describes her:
"...half a nymph with glancing eyes and fair cheeks, and half again a huge snake, great and awful, with speckled skin, eating raw flesh beneath the secret parts of the holy earth."
