Salvador Dali's "Medusa" depicts the beautiful monster from Greek mythology described as a winged human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. She had the ability to turn onlookers to stone until she was beheaded by the hero Perseus and her head given to the goddess Athena to place on her shield. For this work, Dali he was inspired to dip a dead octopus found on the beach in acid and imprint it on the paper as Medusa's hair. Series: Mythologie. Publisher: Pierre Argillet
