Medusa's Gaze


The banded agate libation bowl known as the Tazza Farnese features Medua’s head on its outside and, inside, an assembly of Egyptian Gods. This book traces its remarkable story, from its creation in Ptolemaic Egypt, to Rome, Constantinople, Sicily, Sarkand, and finally back to Europe, to inspire antiquarians from the Renaissance to the modern age.
