The snake-headed Medusa Head was origionally acquired by the collector Canon Ferdinand Franz Wallraf from Roman dealer in 1818. It is supposed to have from a Hadrianic temple of Roman and Venus and had been recently restored with marble pieces added.

After the war, in 1972, fragments were found in a box of damaged pieces of art. A plaster mask was located in another mueum, and a reconstruction was attempted.

Here is a link in German. It shows the size of the head in relation to a person. Please note that the link at the bottom unfortunately does not work.
