here you can see the work on a topic, that I have been occupied for a long time.
In the old Greek mythology, it is said that medusa was so beautiful, the goodesses envied her for her beauty. One day, medusa went to the temple of Athena to made a sacrifice. In the temple, she was caught off guard by Poseidon, who abused her. Athena was angered over the amorous play in her temple and punished medusa with snake hair and fearsome visage. At a later time, Perseus cut Medusa’s head of. He used her fearsome visage to defeat a monster later on. In that regard, Medusa paid 3 times the price for something she hadn’t done: she got abused, she got disfigured, she got beheaded because of her uglification.
It also needs to be considered, that Medusa got punished by the person she worshipped. The temple of Athena is not a protected area for Medusa. Why didn’t Athene help Medusa ?
