Quotes

The Dog: [having found a statue of Medusa's head] That face, it's horrible. Where does it come from?
The Storyteller: A long way away on a rock at the edge of the world, lived a woman with terrible claws, wings of bronze and breath as foul as corpses. Her hair was a nest of poisiones snakes.

Medusa: Shall we turn and look at them, sisters?
