Over the centuries, images of Perseus have reflected not only the tenor of the times in which they were created, but also variations in the telling of the myth. Here Perseus appears as a classically -inspired yet clearly Renaissance figure. He holds a sword, rather than the sickle of Hermes, as described in most classical sources.
