Medusa Minimalist Gold leaf ceramic Statue
Medusa Ceramic Statue
From the Greek Μέδουσα (Medousa), which was derived from μέδω (medo) meaning "to protect, to rule over". In Greek myth this was the name of one of the three Gorgons, women who had snakes for hair. She was so monstrous that anyone who gazed upon her was turned to stone, so the hero Perseus had to look using the reflection in his shield in order to slay her.
However, Medusa is a powerful feminine symbol, with control over the natural cycle and in harmony with the worlds of earth and sky. As such she posed a great threat to the power of the Greek male-dominated sky gods. In order to subjugate Medusa's power to the male order, she is decapitated, and her head is used to further buttress the dominion of the male over the destructive and wily female.
Please keep in mind, much like the ancient ruins are imperfect so are plaster/ceramic pieces. There might be some slight imperfections.
This beautiful figure is made with gold leaf and plaster. She is ready to grace your feminine space.
Measurements: 6 inches in height about 2 inches wide
