Medusa in Madrid

I love mosaics, especially floor mosaics, and I like Medusa, and this is a Medusa mosaic, currently in the Archeological Museum of Madrid, that I particularly like. Many Medusas in mosaics thoughtfully look away so as not to turn you or your guests into stone, but this pouty lady, who looks like she’s holding her breath to try contain her rage, isn’t going to let you get away with anything. The birds on the oblique sides of the hexagon each represent a season. I like that spring, in the bottom right, seems to be a hadeda.
