“No man who beheld her could not fall; she had eyes of diamond and silken hair. Such a beauty was consumed inside, the fire of pride burned in her heart. That fire so many led to ruin, ended by being the cause of her disgrace. Medusa dared to compare herself to the golden armed daughter of Zeus, an affront the goddess could not bear. A revenge so cruel made her who was once by all loved and admired become a monster feared by the whole mankind. Medusa’s beautiful hair turned to a tangle of poisonous snakes, horrible scales covered her skin. Her eyes grew cold, her gaze as sharp as wind in a winter night, could chill the blood in the bravest heart. Turning into stone whoever dared into those hollow eyes to stare.”
