What would happen to Medusa today

Photo from: Gian Lorenzo Bernini ai Musei capitolini (Wikipedia)

You surely know this story from Greek mythology. This female monster was guilty to turn to stones everybody who looked at her. After hero Perseus beheaded her, Athena placed that head on her shield.

Poor Medusa had probably bad life because could not have friends and had to live always alone. But what is worse, she could even not die.
Near them their sisters three, the Gorgons, winged
With snakes for hair— hated of mortal man—
лысая«лысая» на Яндекс.Фотках

This story I wanted to remember you because I found a photo with an interesting explanation of what it is. The modern interpretation of the antique myth. Here you can see what did Medusa with her hears (according to the author of the article I read and where I found the photos):

Горгона постриглась.

For those who did not understand the joke (there was just written here: it's "HUMOR")I repeat my answer to one of the readers:

It's a joke. It wants to say, this joke: "If Medusa woud live today, she would not suffer her bad destiny, she would not live without friends probably. She woud cut her hairs and wear special glasses. And she could live among all other persons and have a normal life".

The real myth you can read in hundreds of books and in hundreds of sites. Why had I to repeat it in my blog once more?
