Istanbul Archaeological Museum (Day 4)

One cannot possibly ignore the Medusa Medallion that sits in the Larissa section which is dimly lit. Flash photography is forbidden. Measuring 102cm, Medusa’s head is slightly turned to the left, her eyes looking in the same direction with her full cheeks and childish face that makes it look like she’s smiling. Some reddish pigments can be seen in the hair with traces of black in the eyes. . .
