As in any other piece from the Fallen Empire, in this paper I rethink depict high antique grace and beauty In the centre of the composition, the mask of Medusa, with cold and empty eyes. She had no emotions. Female characters on the sides exaggerate this feeling of emptiness. It's not a threat or sadness, rather silent static composition, in which the author loaded her aesthetic and calm.
