Perseus Slays the Gorgon Medusa

Danae, a young maiden who has been imprisoned by her father in a metal chamber, is visited by Zeus who appears in the guise of a golden rain. By this rain, she is impregnated, giving birth to Perseus. Then, as an adult, Perseus is tasked with the slaying of the gorgon Medusa. Assisted by the goddess Athena, Perseus succeeds in cutting off the gorgon’s head.
