14. The Medusa is depicted at the moment when, in the reflection of the shield of Perseus, her head has flown to the ground. And unlike the early interpretations, she is represented like an ordinary woman, not like a monster. She has the regular features, an attractive eye shape, and if it were not for the horrible horror of her face, there would not be anything forbidden in her appearance. The head of Medusa is made by Caravaggio with realistic graphics.
