Take a look at these two gals…the one who transforms into Medusa in the hallway of the Haunted Mansion, and the one who is in the portrait hanging on the wall in the skeleton tavern scene in the Pirates of the Caribbean. Do they look similar? That’s because they are drawings of the same girl, both created by legendary animator and Imagineer Marc Davis!
Wait a minute… if the second picture is The Red Head on Pirates of the Caribbean… does that mean The Red Head’s ancestor was Medusa????
Here is the truth behind the painting of the beautiful pirate girl. She is none other than the wench at the auction. This is what became of her after she was bought, and married off to her pirate husband. Note the beauty mark on her face.
