Neptune, God of the Sea visits his kingdom on a wall mural

"The sea - a divided realm of politics, commerce, and exploitation, crying, pleading to Neptune and his kind."

Neptune Junior stands proudly with his trident as he passes by his kingdom - the sea - a mural painting by the author at his residence in Lagro, QC. Photo taken  during a parade sponsored by Einstein School in January 2016.
 
Greek mythology comes alive, the sea is full of life:
     creatures in a wide range of  biodiversity,
the dreaded Kraken, the resurrected Coelacanth, 
     ruins of technology, records of history.

Deeper than Mt Everest is high, the Marianas Trench,
     craggy, eerie more than the Grand Canyon,
yet gentle as the Pacific, save Michener's Hawaii
     where man and nature seek a peaceful union.    

A Kingdom of legends and adventures, of Jules Verne
     and Cousteau, fiction and science combined;
a divided realm of politics, commerce, exploitation,    
     crying, pleading to Neptune and his kind.

" The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever."
Jacques Cousteau
