Messy Medussa

Medusa, thanks to Minerva, was furnished with a vile coiffure of snakes. Perseus defeated her terrible stony gaze through her reflection in Minerva's golden mirrored shield. He lopped off her head, poor girl, and thereafter slung it around with him to use it as his gruesome weapon. An encounter with Atlas, the Titan who held up the sky, ended badly for the giant who was turned to stone, seaweed of the Red Sea, bled upon by the head, was turned to coral and then that creepy, would be step-father King Polydectes was transformed into rock before he could marry Perseus' dear ma-ma.
