“Amor et psyche”
Medusa is another figure from the Greek mythology. Originally she was a priestess of Athena, very charming, with beautiful locks adorning her face. After having had an intercourse with Neptune in the temple of Athena (wisdom), the goddess herself turned Medusa into a monster with snakes in place of her hairs to punish the desecration of the temple.
Maybe this is a myth that stands for a symbol of the constructive and destructive power of the reason.
