Gods And Titans: Poseidon

The God of the Seas

Dominic Harris' depiction of Poseidon holding his trident captures the duality of the god's nature, as he alternates between maintaining iconic poses and revealing more casual, relaxed moments. The trident, a symbol of his dominion over the seas, serves as a reminder of his power and authority, while his casual demeanour humanises the god and brings him closer to the viewer.
In the context of modern society, Poseidon's shifting persona can be seen as a reflection of the complex and multifaceted identities that people often navigate. Today, individuals are expected to fulfil various roles and responsibilities in their personal and professional lives, which may require them to adapt their behaviour or demeanour accordingly. Harris' portrayal of Poseidon encourages the viewer to consider the challenges of maintaining these different personas and the importance of authenticity and self-acceptance in a constantly changing world.
The casual moments where Poseidon lets his guard down can be interpreted as a reminder of the vulnerability that lies beneath the surface of even the most powerful individuals. In today's fast-paced, competitive world, people are often pressured to project an image of success and strength, sometimes at the cost of their well-being. By humanising Poseidon and depicting him in more vulnerable moments, Harris invites viewers to recognize the importance of acknowledging and embracing their own vulnerabilities, as well as those of others.
