JBL Statues - Medusa Gorgon

Home Order

Medusa Gorgon Goddess of Righteous Wrath. In some traditions she was a serpent goddess of the Libyan Amazons and represented female wisdom. In others she was an Anatolian Sun Goddess. Medusa is identical with the Crone or Destroyer aspect of the dark Egyptian goddess Nieth; she was also one member of the triple personae of the North African goddess An-Ath. When that goddess was imported by the Greeks as patroness of Athens, Medusa's fierce visage was embossed on Athena's shield. That her wrath turned men to stone may be a folk memory of the theft of wise woman culture by the patriarchy. An allomorph of Kali, this image with her sword and lion guards the goddess temple at Corfu.Black/bronze colored Ganges clay.
