Medusa definitely isn't going to win any beauty pageants. She and her Gorgon sisters, Euryale and Stheno, are totally revolting. They have snakes for hair, for Pete's sake, and anyone who looks them in the eyes instantly turns into stone. (Yeah, that’s about as ugly as it gets.) Medusa became famous when the hero Perseus chopped off her head (with a little help from the goddess Athena).
