    Medusa has inspired many artists to paint her – reputedly Leonardo da Vinci, Rubens and Caravaggio among others – however, none have shown a softer side to her, until Maria Rivans was inspired to re-create her in one of her collages. Inspired by her love of Hollywood and sci-fi films here is the snake-haired Medusa in the 1981 film 'Clash of the Titans' by the reknowned model maker Ray Harryhausen that Maria has worked her creativity on. There are various versions in Greek Mythology of Medusa, but the film version shows Perseus entering the lair of the snake-haired Medusa, who picks off one of his men with an arrow and turns another to stone with her eyes. Perseus uses his reflection to trick her - and chops off her head. Fortunately Marias Medusa depicts none of these traits and illustrates a woman of great beauty and softness with Marias trademark exotic birds and flowers among the snakes. was looking through a 1935 Picture Show Annual when I came across the beautiful face of the actor Sylvia Sidney and knew I just had to use her in one of my collages. I wanted to create my version of the evil and terrifying Medusa, inspired by Harryhausen's model in Clash of the Titans but here Medusa has begun to findpeace and love in her heart - commenting in the hope I have for the human race. Medusa traditionally uses a bow and arrow as her weapon of choice, but this has now been transformed into the beautiful collar of utensils and pens - no longer any use for further destruction.� says Maria Rivans.Click these words to find similar printsSilk Screen Prints Limited Edition Colourful Buy Art, Pay Later Contemporary Art Portrait
