Day 4: Prompt “Freeze”

Inktober 2019 Medusa

Medusa was a beautiful woman who was raped by the god Poseidon in Athena’s temple. Depending on who tells this story, Athena was either enraged with jealousy, or overcome with pity so she felt the need to protect Medusa by turning her into a monster who could freeze men into stone. Medusa lived the solitary life with her Gorgon sisters until the demigod Perseus came around, decapitated her then used her head as a weapon against his enemies.
