Like Bacchus, Medusa is a classic icon of the ancient world and enduring inspiration for artists. The loneliest immortal it was said that Medusa could turn any man to stone who looked at her. Her hair was a crown of poisonous snakes. But the fear inherent in the Medusa legend hides a story of strength and power. Medusa had monstrous powers… but she was no monster. Her snakes were soothsayers whispering the future in her ears. And Medusa’s petrifying gaze was the gaze of endless knowledge. She was the guardian of eternity. Distant cousin to the Fates. Fittingly enough Brian Nagle’s Medusa captures that power and that strength. (But this Medusa can be hung on the wall without fear of reprisal.) A signed and numbered limited edition. Only 50 copies exist in the world. Each Medusa is cast out of lead-free pewter, hand finished and antiqued by the artist and individually signed and numbered. Ready to hang… A true artist’s piece.
