We are excited to offer you this 1:1 scale Medusa Bust!
In the ancient world of myths and monsters, Medusa, the earliest depiction of Gorgons in Greek art, is recognizable by her venomous snake hair. Gazers of her face would turn to stone. Now, the artists at ECC are rediscovering the history of Mythology, finding in it inspiration for the reimagining of these characters.
From a fascination with the natural world, the intricacies of geometric design, heroic tales of gods and monsters, to a passion for the human form and the Classical Style, the Medusa bust is one of the most carefully and subtly conceived sculptures ECC has created to date. She is more than just a straightforward illusion of flesh and blood. She is also an essay in order and proportion, a meticulously composed scheme for how a mythological creature should be. Each venomous snake on her head has intelligence, and is individually looking for their prey.
This Medusa is the first female character designed and created by Steve Wang for ECC's Transformotion line, and is also the centerpiece of our new Elite Arts Collection.
