Dear fellows,

On April 2nd, 2010 I just finished this second feature for the god Poseidon, the king of the seas according to the Greek mythology. This time I intended to endow him with a more humanized face and I also performed some changes in his hair and beard.

I remind you that I had previously made a Mask of Poseidon which was posted here on Jan 06, 2010, showing a more grotesque feature.

It was carved on a 1 3/8 inch thick board of Brazilian “pau marfim” (Balfourodendron riedelianum) that was affixed on a mitred-jointed panel made of true Rio-rosewood (Dalbergia nigra).

The mask dimensions: 12” high, 9” wide
The panel dimensions: 18” high, 15” wide

That’s really nice. Was this for a commission, or…?
