18 snakes and what do you get?

Medusa.  The pre invasion goddess of abundance and protection.

For months now I have been captivated by images of Medusa.  I have drawn her several times and just had to incorporate these drawings into a doll.  After creating the “Mermaid -Breaking Free” I suspect I am claiming my power again.  This lady doesn’t need to break free of anything and doesn’t seem to be afraid of anything either.

She was quite a challenge with all the snakes.  The snakes took just as long as creating the figure!  Eighteen snakes – somehow seems like a mystical number it is made up of threes and nines.

The base is not yet finished.  The pillar is temporary until I get back from Edmonton.  I realized that a heavy plaster pillar was not ideal for shows.
