Stunning plaque of the fearsome lady. Medusa, in Greek mythology was a mortal woman transformed into a Gorgon, a dragon-like creature with snakes for hair. Medusa was slain by Perseus. Medusa's head was so hideous-even in death-that any beholder was turned to stone. Her image was later used by Athena to ward off evil and devious men, which is probably where Versace got their ideas. This Striking 3D wall plaque is made from cast stone and hand painted faux sandstone. Very detailed .The back is flat and features steel bar for easy hanging. It's measurements in inches are 15"W X 16"H X 2"D . You will love the quality of our art.
