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!
