Andromeda rescued from the monster
 



In the late medieval representation, Perseus appears as an armored knight astride a winged unicorn. The demure pose of Andromeda is more akin to that of a praying donor in a medieval altarpiece than to the terrified woman chained to a rock in the classical story.
