- The Gorgon in Greek myth were the three sisters, Stheno, Euryale, and Medusa, who had the power to turn anyone who looked at them to stone. All three had once been beautiful women until they were cursed by the goddess Athena after Medusa had sex with the sea god Poseidon. Medusa was the only mortal out of the three, and was killed by the Greek hero Perseus, when he turned her power against her with a mirror, turning her into stone, and then cutting off her head.
- The portrait shown in Blade Runners is Medusa a c.1618 painting by the Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens, showing the severed head of Medusa. The snakes in the painting have been attributed to Frans Snyders. It is in the collection of the Kunsthistorisches Museumin Vienna. Another copy is held in Moravian Gallery in Brno.
