The Surf God

The Surf God

Piece description from the artist

Have you spent too long waiting for the next good wave? Have the seas suddenly become as placid as a mountain lake? Perhaps your offer to the god of surf was insufficient and next time bring a better beer for the libation. I'd suggest a cream stout or even a barley wine.

In this scene, a couple of surfers sit stranded on the beach by a waveless ocean. Above them resides the great god of the surf, a giant rock statue carved from a porous lava rock. He stands above the waves in a goofy foot stance, looking out to sea.
