Refined, handmade sculpture in terracotta, modeled and painted following the antique techniques. It depicts the most renewed of the three Gorgons, Medusa. 

The three sisters, Stimo, Euriales and Medusa, daughters of immortal beings, were once graceful maidens. But one fateful day, Medusa slept with Poseidon in Athena’s temple, incurring the goddess’ wrath. Athena thus transformed the guilty woman into a horrible winged monster:
Medusa had flaming eyes, her tongue hanging from a mouth filled with very long teeth, and real snakes twisted on her head in the place of hair. Her eyes could petrify those who encountered them: to kill her, Perseus made use of his polished shield, which mirrored her. Although cut from the body, the dead head could still petrify. Perseus took advantage of it, and with its help, he defeated his enemies. He destroyed a sea monster that was about to receive a beautiful eastern princess, Andromeda, as a human sacrifice. The girl now safe, Perseus could marry her, and returned with her to Greece.

The sculpture of "Medusa" by Ithaca, Given its firing at about 1000° C, can be placed outside and won't be damaged by sun, cold or ice.
