Medusa's Protection (Silver or Gold) Enamel Pin


Near them their sisters three, the Gorgons, winged with snakes for hair and hatred of mortal man.
–Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound

In classical antiquity the image of the head of Medusa appeared in the evil-averting device known as the Gorgoneion. Available in either silver or gold color, this soft enamel pin measures 1.5 inches across with two pin backs to prevent spinning.
