Perseus with the head of Medusa, in Florence~ the ancients carved statues of their history, and many believe these creatures of myth were creations of biogenetic engineering by an ancient yet advanced race. Many of our own biogeneticists are on the cutting edge of creating two headed dogs and giving head transplants today.

Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, “the jealous aspiration of many suitors,” but because Poseidon had raped her in Athena’s temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa’s beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone. She was beheaded by the hero Perseus, who was sent to fetch her head by King Polydectes of Seriphus. #myth

Medusa: In Greek mythology Medusa was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Gazing directly into her eyes would turn onlookers to stone. Most sources describe her as the daughter of Phorcys and Ceto. Medusa was beheaded by the hero Perseus, who thereafter used her head as a weapon until he gave it to the goddess Athena to place on her shield. #myth
