Head of Medusa – Benedetto Pistrucci, 1840-1850

Red jasper mounted in gold with white enamel. Inspired by the Rondanini Medusa in the Munich Glyptothek. This 5.3cm x 5.3cm masterwork features such fine details that are barely visible to the naked eye. Close inspection shows deep carved intricacies of hair, feathers, and other embellishments.
