POSEIDON GOD OF THE SEA

Poseidon is the god of the sea and protector of all aquatic features. Poseidon is one of the twelve Olympian deities of the pantheon in Greek mythology. He married Amphitrite, one of the granddaughters of the Titan Oceanus. At one point he desired Demeter. To deter him, Demeter asked him to make the most beautiful animal that the world had ever seen. So, in an effort to impress her, Poseidon created the first horse. In some accounts, his first attempts were unsuccessful and created a variety of other animals in his quest; thus, by the time the horse was created, his passion for Demeter had diminished. His weapon was a trident, with which he could make the earth shake, causing earthquakes, and shatter any object. This figure, as with all our other bronze items, are cast in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method, therefore each piece is unique. It was made in Greece, stands 42 centimeters high, 7 centimeters width, and weighs approximately 1.8 kg.
