The Wrath of Poseidon

The Wrath of Poseidon art quilt by Marilyn Belford

The Wrath of Poseidon 2011

Poseidon, God of the waters was an angry and jealous God, demanding extreme obeisance. He was also called the “Earth-shaker”. When offended or ignored, he supposedly struck the ground with his trident and caused chaotic springs, earthquakes, drownings, and shipwrecks.

How It Was Made

I visited several body-building sites to get Poseidon’s physique just right! The chest is from a wrestler, the legs are Michaelangelo’s, and the flap at the end of the banner is sown down–no peeking!
