This awesome sketch art card of Perseus vs Medusa from Greek Mythology is drawn by the very talented artist Rhiannon Owens for our Classic Mythology trading card set.
Greek Mythology – Perseus was the son of Zeus and Danaë. Perseus was the legendary founder of Mycenae and of the Perseid dynasty of Danaans there, was the first of the mythic heroes of Greek mythology whose exploits in defeating various archaic monsters provided the founding myths of the Twelve Olympians. Perseus was the Greek hero who killed the Gorgon Medusa, and claimed Andromeda, having rescued her from a sea monster sent by Poseidon in retribution for Queen Cassiopeia declaring herself more beautiful than the sea nymphs.
quite realistic, and I am wondering what illustration media is used
Excellent, I loved it
he is the only human/god to ride the pegasus that sprang from medusa's neck after being slain
No, in classic mythology Perseus never rode Pegasus as he used Hermes winged sandals for flight. The only human to tame and ride Pegasus was Bellerophon.
