Believing in the power of gaze - Deepstash

Believing in the power of gaze

The power of gaze appears in stories and myths throughout the centuries.

  • Medusa turned people to stone with her gaze.
  • The catoblepas and the basilisk, both described by Pliny the Elder, could kill with the single glance.
  • In Shakespeare’s Venus and Adonis, Venus complains of the pain caused by Adonis’ glance.
  • As a cultural reference, we can also mention the Jedi master or Superman.
