If Medusa looked John Smith in the eye, this is what would have happened

In Greek mythology, Medusa was a monster with the face of a hideous woman and a head full of snakes (not hair). When a person looked her in the eye, he or she turned to stone.

That is a totally believable origin story for this lamp I saw at a flea market a little over a week ago.


I think he looks like John Smith (at least, the Disney iteration — it’s all in the hat).


Can you imagine the shadows this thing would cast from your bedside table at night?
