Links : A good source of animations.  Most of the animations you see on this website I found on this website. This website has an enormous collection of pictures and paintings for a wide range of topics.  I would suggest it as a starting point in your search. A very useful search engine because it will check your query in about 15 other search engines which gives you more links and is much quicker than having to go to each one individually. A Greek Mythology Link that provides lots of information on Medea and all the events surrounding her character.
