This awesome sketch art card of Medusa from Greek Mythology is drawn by the very talented artist Craig Yeung
for our Classic Mythology trading card set.
This is one of 6 rare tonal pencil art cards that Craig drew for this set. These will be inserted randomly in sets with a color sketch card.
Medusa – Greek Mythology –Medusa was one of 3 Gorgon sisters, a chthonic monster, and a daughter of Phorcys and Ceto. Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, "the jealous aspiration of many suitors," priestess in Athena's temple, but when she and the "Lord of the Sea" Poseidon were caught together (against her will) 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 thereafter used her head as a weapon until he gave it to the goddess Athena to place on her shield.
