Gorgoneion Assemblage

Hello everyone!

Today I’m so excited to share a very special project I created, inspired by Greek Mythology.

I had this wooden beach racket in my “scrap box” for ages. Its shape always reminded me of a hand mirror. Mirrors are very often referred to as having magical powers, in myths and fairytales.

One thought led to another and soon I remembered the ancient Greek myth of Perseus and Medusa.

In the video, you will hear me talking a bit about the myth, and how it inspired me to create my


Gorgoneion Assemblage



The whole piece measures 16 inches high and 11 inches wide.




For this art piece, I used DecoArt Acrylic Paints and Finnabair Metallique Paints. You will find full list of materials at the end of this post.




from which I took the round shape of the focal point, the gold and blue colors and the faces shown on their beautiful moodboard.

Here are some close ups of the assemblage.










I really hope you enjoy it! Please feel free to leave me your comments or just say high.
