EDITORS COMMENTS
This 19th century print, titled "Neptune and His Hippocampi," transports us back to the mythological world of ancient Greece. Neptune, the Roman equivalent of the Greek god Poseidon, is depicted in regal splendor as he rides his chariot across the vast, shimmering sea. The god of the sea is shown in classical pose, with his muscular form clad in flowing robes and adorned with a trident, the symbol of his power. Surrounding Neptune are his loyal Hippocampi, mythical creatures who were half horse and half fish. These enchanting beasts, with their flowing manes and tails, gracefully draw Neptune's chariot through the waves. In this print, they are shown in mid-gallop, their powerful limbs propelling the chariot forward with ease. Neptune's trident is raised in a salute, as if in acknowledgement of the music of the sea that accompanies his journey. The god's serene expression and the tranquil waters around him convey a sense of peace and harmony, despite the raw power and energy of the scene. Tritons, Neptune's attendants, can be seen frolicking in the waves alongside the chariot. Their playful antics add a lighthearted touch to the otherwise grandiose scene. This print, created circa 1860, is a stunning example of historical artistry and a testament to the enduring allure of Greek mythology.
