    Purchased in Tijuana about fifteen years ago, this figure is heavily painted red clay earthenware standing 10" (25.4 cm) tall. It is not signed.

    The shopkeeper proudly said "Es Medusa" when I brought it to the counter. Sensing an incongruity between Medusa and Mexican folklore, I replied with a simple "Si, porque? (forgive the font - imagine the accent marks). He laughed and said "Muchos Mexicanos tienen miedo de las culebras."
