The Myth of Athena and Medusa
Transcript of The Myth of Athena and Medusa
There was a beautiful maiden named Medusa who lived in a city of Athens in Greece.
SUN: Bragged that her skin was more beautiful than fresh fallen snow
MON: Bragged that her hair was brighter than the sun
TUES: Bragged that her eyes were greener than the Aegean sea
WED: Bragged that her lips were redder than the reddest rose
She would admire herself in the well each afternoon as she drew water for her father's horse.
The Parthenon was the largest temple to the goddess Athena.
She would admire herself in her had mirror each morning and each night.
The Parthenon had amazing sculptures and paintings towards Athena.
Medusa sighed happily and said that this is a beautiful temple. It was a shame that it was wasted on Athena for I am so much more prettier than she is.
The people in the temple quickly began to leave-for everyone enjoyed Athena watching over them and feared what might happen.
The statue turned into Athena as Medusa was the only on left in the temple. Until Athena said enough and told Medusa that because of her foolishness she would be turned into a hideous monster before Medusa could say a word.
Medusa turned into a hideous monster and was sent to live with the blind monsters (gorgon sisters) at the ends of the earth,so that she wouldn't turn anyone to stone.
