Medusa / by Deborah Clague

Some of the most compelling art I've experienced in life was influenced by the macabre seduction of mythological provocateur Medusa. This piece incorporates another artwork of that narrative, "Perseus With The Head of Medusa" by Italian artist Benvenuto Cellini. Located in Florence, Italy it is one of the most beautifully intricate sculptures I've seen.
