The State Library and Archives of Florida’s Flickr Commons page, Florida Memory, is kind of killing it today with weirdness.

I love it.

Medusa for days

I’m doing some research on Medusa and came across a John Singer Sargent piece in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. And holy wow, the MFA has a TON of Medusa stuff! YES. Sometimes finding the repository of a piece is a great way to serendipitously uncover a bunch of other things…

John Singer Sargent, Perseus on Pegasus Slaying Medusa, 1922-1925

Scaraboidal gem with gorgon as winged centaur seizing a lion, Greek, 6th century B.C.E.

Vase with cover, German, 1774–1814

Oil flask (lekythos) in the form of a bust of Medusa, Greek, East Greek, 6th century B.C.E.

The Compleat Explorer

I love this illustration by Griffith Taylor from ’11. 1911, that is!
