Me and Doctor Freud know what you’re up to with the position of that harpe, Benvenuto!
This sight of Medusa’s head makes the spectator stiff with terror, turns him to stone. Observe that we have here once again the same origin from the castration complex and the same transformation of affect! For becoming stiff means an erection. Thus in the original situation it offers consolation to the spectator: he is still in possession of a penis, and the stiffening reassures him of the fact.
And it doesn’t improve from different angles, you Mannerist old pervert.
