Storyboard Text

  • Your beauty is a sight to behold, Medusa.
  • Medusa was one of three sisters, the gorgons, but she was the only mortal one.
  • This should do the trick!
  • Poseidon was besotted with Medusa, but she did not return his charms.
  • Angry about her ignorance, Poseidon turned the three sisters into monsters with live snakes covering their heads. If anyone dared to look into their eyes, they would immediately turn to stone.
  • Perseus asked Athena and Hermes for help and the two of them, along with the nymphs, provided winged sandals for him to fly to the end of the world (where the gorgons lived), a cap that made him invisible, a sword and a mirrored shield. This shield was the most important weapon that Perseus had, since it allowed him to see Medusa's reflection and avoid being turned to stone.
  • After he cut Medusa's head off, Perseus flew back and escaped the two remaining sisters who tried to reach him.
  • Later, Perseus used Medusa's head as a weapon in many occasions, as it could still turn people into stone, until he gave the head to Athena to place it on her shield.
