The original is a bronze statue that was created by Benvenuto Cellini (1500 – 1571). After its completion in 1554 it was placed in the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence (Tuscany), where it still stands.
Perseus was the son of Zeus and his mistress Danaë. The father of Danaë named Acrisius was the king of Argos, he was told that the son of his daughter will be his undoing. For this reason, the king sends Perseus to kill Medusa with the idea that he dies there. On a long travel with many dangers, he finally manages to kill Medusa. And in a competition with his grandfather, he kills him by an accident.
