- Poseidon God of the Sea Statue
Bronze Poseidon Statue
Poseidon God of the Sea Statue. The Greek God of two powerful and unpredictable forces of nature: the Sea and Earthquakes. Poseidon is a deity often noted with a mixture of trepidation and awe.
The statue of this bold and mythic god posed in a form at one with the sea. With turbulent waves crashing about him, he is shown to have the lower body of a fish, and the upper body of a muscular man. His bearded face is contorted in anger, with his trident poised back to strike in wrath and cause the earthquakes and crashing waves for which he was feared. With the removable trident in place the statue stands approximately 12 1/2" tall and 6" wide, making a formidable addition to your home, office, study and/or sacred space The majestic god is crafted of cold-cast resin and hand painted in bronze color finish, so as to create a heavy-weight sculpture that appears to be crafted of bronze.
Poseidon was often regarded as the protector of many Greek cities, whose economy and well being frequently depended upon the bounty and trade the sea could provide. Those who would travel the sea would sometimes even drown horses in sacrifice to Poseidon, seeking his favor. He is spoken of in many legends, and reputedly fathered many of the Greek heroes spoken of in legend, and is a prominent figure in Homer's tales, aiding the Greeks during the Iliad, actively seeking to aid them in their battles against the Trojans, while in the Odyssey, he turns his hatred upon Odysseus for blinding his son, the Cyclops Polyphemus and prevents Odysseus from reaching his home of Ithaca for many years.
