Familiar monsters are given a complete makeover by Sara Fanelli in this terrifying and original introduction to the Greek myths. There’s the gorgon Medusa with her snake hair whose terrible eyes turn people into stone, the winged horse Pegasus, the Minotaur with his maze – and many more. Within her powerful and thought provoking pictures Sara Fanelli creates new images of age-old characters.
