Poseidon Neptune

 

Poseidon (Roman: Neptune) was the Greek god of the sea. Brother of Zeus and Hades, Poseidon has been very well popularized in many cultures as a symbol of the ocean's power, fury, and mystery. Personally I've been meaning to sculpt him for some time to close the loop with a few of my other pieces: Athena, Medusa, and Pegasus. According to one legend, he raped the beautiful maiden Medusa at the temple of Athena. Athena in her wrath transformed Medusa into a gorgon (since she couldn't take it out on her uncle), later to be slain by Perseus and in the process giving birth to Pegasus. And as I write this I just realized I need to sculpt Perseus to fully close the loop! My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
