    Medusa's Temple of Worship

    I wouldn't be showcasing this reward space but there had been a recent discussion concerning who had claim to it; Athena or Medusa. The ambiguity of the private space is immediately obvious. Nestled in the heavens , it is easy to see that Athena would reside there but according to Greek mythology the Gods abode was Mount Olympus. The beautiful golden doors to the private space could have been Athena's shield with Medusa's head embrossed upon its surface. It could be believed ... if we disregard the facts.

    In creating this space I saw something else. Medusa's Temple. She wasn't a Goddess but some proclaim her as a demi-god and I thought I would explore the idea of obscure temple worshipers who would pray to anyone to ease their misery. During ancient times these cults would spring up everywhere, providing a haven for those in need. The priests and priestesses would sometimes live at these temples and spend their time praying and building up a following therefore; securing their position of power with the attending worshipers.

    My Medusa's Temple to the left has a small private space for the attending priestess. I also included a small eating and relaxing area. Most of the time the food was brought to the priests or priestessess so little cooking was actually done by them. Frequently at certain angles it reminded me of the Parthenon in Athens Greece so I placed Grecian statues to mimic the Karyatis Porch of the Erechtheion on the Acropolis. ToyLogic, Mercia and Sony's Grecian furniture were crucial in creating this space.

    In conclusion ... what do you think? Is it Athena's or Medusa's? I'd love to hear your opinion on it.

    Bye for now...
