perseus  
Poking around on the internets for images led me to the V&A website, which led me to a sketch model of the head of Medusa for Cellini's statue of Perseus:

I love Cellini's Perseus, and its odd sense of menace, so I was interested to see this.

Not sure what to make of this one, though:
"Rosary bead, Memento mori," ca. 1525-1550
