Cast in bronze at the famed Fonderia Artistica Battaglia in Milan, Italy, this commissioned sculpture sits
prominently above Puget Sound with powerful views of the Olympic Mountains. With the new residence set
back from the shore, Poseidon was placed to pull the energy of the sea up into the site. The modern tower that
forms the basis of the home’s design, is charged by his ancient presence.
While Poseidon’s sculptural form works to activate the energy of the residence entrance, his aggregated form
hints at more serious contemporary issues. Assembled from symbolic ‘sea trash’ and entangled in abandoned
line from commercial fishing, this god is weakened but not gone. Poseidon’s form continues to draw strength,
giving us access to the numinous sea, despite our contemporary abuse of this god’s ancestral home.
