Artwork Description

THE HIPPOI OF POSEIDON

"And there [depicted on the shield of Akhilleus] triumphant the Earth-shaker [Poseidon] rode amid Ketea (Sea-monsters): stormy-footed steeds [Hippokampoi] drew him, and seemed alive, as o'er the deep they raced, oft smitten by the golden whip. Around their path of flight the waves fell smooth, and all before them was unrippled calm. Dolphins on either hand about their king swarmed, in wild rapture of homage bowing backs, and seemed like live things o'er the hazy sea swimming, albeit all of silver wrought." -Quintus Smyrnaeus 5.88

I have visited your site maybe four times now! I really love your work; it inspires me. Blizzard is perhaps my favorite one. I mean, you see so many unicorns! Was wondering, do you also collect Breyer horses? Maybe you could submit your resume and work for them...
