It takes a lot of hair-care to maintain that hairdo, and it seems she’s interrupted getting ready for her date with a hunky hero. Gorgons are figures of Greek mythology commonly described as female figures with living snakes for hair. It is said that looking into a Gorgon’s eyes will turn a person to stone. This quality makes them a featured monstrous antagonist in Greek legends, such as the tale of Perseus, who slew Medusa. - Camilla d'Errico
