Gorgoneion

In  Ancient Greece  the  "Gorgoneion"  was  a  special  apotropaic  amulet  showing  the  Gorgon  head  as a  protective pendant  worn  by  Olympian  deities  Athena  and  Zeus.  The  large  Gorgon  eyes,  as  well  as  Athena's "flashing"  eyes, are  symbols  termed  "the  divine  eyes".    In  this  collection  we  bring to life the divine eyes with  precious  stone  elements  that represent the  three  gorgon  sisters,  while  two  of  the  Gorgon sisters "Stheno and Euryale were  immortal, their sister Medusa was not.
