The God from the Sea

“The god [Zeus or Poseidon] is caught at the moment of pause in the full potentiality of his coming movement, described by Carol Mattusch: “the figure has the potential for violence, is concentrating, poised to throw, but the action is just beginning, and we are left to contemplate the coming demonstration of strength.””
