This seems like exactly the photo the artist of the sculpture would have been sculpting for.
That coat of sea foam looks as regal as can be.
So thats easily a 13-15ft wave?
Alternate title: The Sea King Rises from the Depths
Neptune is pissed.
And now as the sea touches the statue, his power will be restored
I am the wave. I am the sea. I am... Poseidon.
I would think he would have preferred being surrounded by waves rather than being surrounded by 3 men in speedos
Neptune is an ancient Roman god, he is there for dudes in speedos.
It looks like he has a royal cloak on made by the ocean
Game over landwalkers.
He looks pretty undignified with out his arm, trident and dripping with bird poo.
Age of mythology?
Happy cake day!
Probably closer to 20.
Looks like a big mink fur coat. Awesome
Which is exactly the type of cloak Neptune would have. This is such an incredible picture.
This is the best thing in the internet today.
I think it might be worth it to lose an arm if I could maintain abs like that at that age.
THE WATER IS REALLY COLD!
OP: I xposted this on /sub/submechanophobia
I linked to this post and gave you credit in the comments. Wanted to let you know.
If you want me to remove it and you post it there, let me know and I will.
British Tabloid Title: NEPPY HAS A WEAPPY
I, too, have lost a kingdom.
Hence why the waves are calm when he's with the dudes in speedos. Otherwise, he makes the seas rough when he doesn't get his fix.
It definitely congers up an ominous feeling..
Hey, OP, you're a cool guy.
Yea he made the waves because he was pissed about the speedoguys.
Grab shell dude.
the level of the tide could have changed as well. hard to say since a wave will in a sense suck up the water in front of it, but it certainly seems like the tide was much higher in this picture than i twas on the days neptune didnt decide to invade.
if i had to guess, that would be called something like a 9 fter???
he's pretty much gonna be king of ze world soon..
Can't be hiding too much behind that loin seashell though
Don't count out the Skywalkers tho. They have light sabers.
So what you are saying is....we need to send more men in speedos to stop all the hurricanes? Well someone get on it!
Fucking night king is at it
I mean, who isn't?
Move over Ted Cruz!
I know he borrowed that coat from.
Don't sell the Romans short! They had their own god of the sea, fully realized with various aspects and cults and everything else, but when they noticed that the Greeks had a god of the sea named Poseidon, they began to conflate the two in myth and religion and art and literature. Neptune kept some of his own distinct characteristics though, and he was never simply a copy.
No shit haven't you seen all the hurricanes he sent. Dude's mad AF at the US right now.
Took the liberty of passing it through PhotoLemur...
If I were on that beach, I would have a hard time looking away from that statue. It just stands out, not moving, looking spooky. lool
EDIT: holy shit....
The foam kinda looks like a fur coat.
Luckily his trident is covered by that leaf shell so the poo doesn't get on it.
That's almost a LPT.
