The myth of Medusa is characterised by paradox, both in terms of her actual stare, which turned men to stone, and in the interpretations that have been given to it. The fascination that she exerts arises from a combination of beauty and fear. Her head was used, in Ancient times, as an apotropaic mask - a talisman to ward off bad luck and the 'evil eye'.
