Among the Greek deities, three were likely considered to be the most powerful of them all. Among those three was Poseidon, who ruled over all the seas in the world. This Poseidon – God of the Sea Statue gives one imagining of what this god looked like. Traditionally, it is accepted that Poseidon looks similar to his brothers, Zeus and Hades, but this statue takes a different stance, depicting Poseidon as a ruler who took on the form most appropriate for his domain. Thus, in this statue, Poseidon is depicted as merman, a creature with the upper torso of a powerfully built man and the lower body of a fish or other aquatic animal. Poseidons torso is decorated with starfish and shells, while his great bearded head is adorned with a crown, indicating his rulership over the seas. Fins adorn his arms, one of which is pulled back, as if preparing throw or attack with his legendary trident. Poseidons fishy tail acts as the statues support and base, as it balances easily atop the crashing waves of the sea. This statue is crafted entirely in cold cast bronze, which is a form of cold cast resin that is mixed with powdered bronze to give the statue a more metallic hue and finish. It is also hand painted to accent its look with color, while also enhancing the statues overall detail. This mythic statue stands approximately 11.25 inches tall. This Poseidon – God of the Sea Statue stands as a king among the mer-people, making it a great fantasy statue to include in your collection, as well as an intriguing look at what some contemporaries might have depicted Poseidon as, whenever he resided in his preferred domain.
