Medusa by Ginger-PolitiCat Medusa by Ginger-PolitiCat
"In the mirror of his (Perseus) bright shield he could see them clearly, creatures with great wings with golden scales and hair a mass of twisting snakes." ~ Mythology, Edith Hamilton

Here is my submission for the Artisan Crafts Monthly Challenge for April: Mythology. :iconcrartisancrafts:

I wasn't quite sure how she would turn out as the "modern" look of Medusa/Gorgons seems a lot more human than in the original description.

This was my first attempt at this style of wings and I'm quite pleased with how she turned out overall. There are pipe-cleaners in the snakes and in the outer structure of the wings. Red sparkle puffy paint for the snake eyes.

I also made her a little outfit...she seemed a bit incomplete without it :)

You're welcome. I just get tired of people slapping Sybaris's drakaina tail on her (which they in turn mislabel as Lamia).
