Gorgoneion faces are some of the oldest forms of magic in human history. They are part of a school called apothropaic magic, which repels bad spirits. Both Zeus and Athena are said to have worn Gorgoneion pendants, but there are examples of Gorgoneion imagery as far back as Neolithic images. For these thousands of years we have known of the this face as the representation of dynamic life energy, connected to the Mother Goddess cult.
