Nereid

Nereid

Piece description from the artist

One of the fifty daughters of Nereus & Doris. Nereids were attendants to Poseidon and were helpful to sailors fighting perilous storms.

Part of a series entitled "Oh My Gods!" which focusses on Greek gods & mythology. I was interested in contemplating what makes god & myth, playing with contemporary ideals versus classical. I was drawn to these Hellenic stories, because they are gods of imperfection, with human faults & frailties, compromised not of one supreme god, but an interlocking web, or soap opera, of major & minor players.
