In Greek mythology, one of three sisters called Gorgons. They had but one eye among them, a fortunate circumstance, as whoever they looked on changed to stone. Medusa is represented in art as a winged virgin and hissing snakes for hair, brazen claws and a single tusk for a tooth. they kept the garden of the Hesperides, where Medusa was slain by Perseus.
