Imagine that painting has regained its popularity, and together with cinematography collects millions in cash from the galleries’ visitors. Then an artist would create a trailer for each new picture, intriguing, but not showing the final result. I present you a parody and at the same time the first trailer for a painting!

In a late version of the Medusa myth, related by the Roman poet Ovid (Metamorphoses 4.770), Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, "the jealous aspiration of many suitors," but because Poseidon had raped her in Athena's temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa's beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone. In Ovid's telling, Perseus describes Medusa's punishment by Minerva (Athena) as just and well earned.
