Snakes, Medusa and PhotoShop

jungle-is-massive

I love the surreal effect of PhotoShop how you can put two completely random images together. I am interested in snakes at the moment, why people are so frightened of them and what they symbolise.

Medusa was one of my favourite Greek Myths and I will be exploring this character next. I had no idea that she was once a beautiful woman who was raped in Athena’s temple and Athena was so angry with Medusa that she cursed her and caused her to be a Gorgon. The snake-haired monster was in fact a rape victim.
