 Perseus on Pegasus Slaying Medusa
In one version of the birth of Pegasus -- the flying horse -- it states the horse was miraculously formed when the blood of Medusa's severed head poured onto the foaming sea, and out of this foam it came.

In Sargent's depiction, he seems to combine the elements of the entire story -- the slaying of Medusa, the birth of Pegasus, and the presenting of Medusa's head to Athena all in one.
