The Gorgon were three mythical sisters, originally beautiful priestesses serving the goddess of wisdom and war, Athena. After the only mortal among them, Medusa, was raped by Poseidon, they vented their anger by torturing men passing Athena’s temple. Outraged by such transgressions, Athena turned the sisters into hideous creatures whose image of “Hate, Violence, and Onslaught … chills the blood.”1 Ever since, the sight of the Gorgon has turned men to stone.
