Gorgon: in Greek mythology, winged female monster, hair consisting of snakes, they were round-faced, flat-nosed, with tongues lolling out and with large projecting teeth. .. Medusa's severed head had the power of turning all who looked upon it into stone. Carved masks of the hideously grotesque type of the Gorgon's head were used as a protection against the evil eye."--Britannica
