Artwork Description

Oil on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

This painting is inspired by Klimt's painting of Hygeia, as depicited in his painting of Medicine, which has since been destroyed. Hygieia is a goddess of health and hygiene, and her symbol is a chalice with a snake twined around its stem.
I have used a figure similar to Klimt, and changed her into Medusa, keeping gold snake wrapped around her arm, and turning the cup into a bowl which is used to provide water for Medusa's head of snakes. Like most of Klimt's women, she is powerful and beautiful. She is looking down as the viewer, with her all knowing gaze.
