    Power over the element of water, as interpreted by the video game community. the power of water is forced downward as propulsion used by the entity. The elemental shoots bolts of water at its enemies , further increasing the idea of water's overbearing force that it uses to hold dominion over non-elements.

    This image looks very similar to Timpson's work. In both, there is a background of yellow. also, Poseidon is in the center and dominates the painting from top to bottom. When the light shines through the work, it only shines through the yellow. It is weak, while Poseidon is strong. No lights shine through him. The yellow also is in contrast to Poseidon. It represents cowardice, while Poseidon is the opposite. He is brave and mighty.

    The connection to ocean creatures in Timpson's "Poseidon" actually has more in common with the comic book character Aquaman than the Poseidon of Greek depictions. The fins are a hallmark of ocean life, and while Poseidon technically lorded over sea creatures, the actual ocean was more his thing. Aquaman's close connection with ocean life makes him a viable subject for "Poseidon."

    When Ben Timpson came to magnet to speak to Mr. Wright’s class, I had the fortunate opportunity to speak one-on-one with him. One of the resounding things he told me was to always try to have nearly child-like critiquing skills; voice an actual opinion with minimal regard to the feelings of those who would be affected (basically, tell the truth, even if it isn’t PC). It’s with that advice in mind that I write this. In Timpson’s work, Poseidon, there is depicted a powerful figure with fins for arms, and the background is a greenish-yellow with many bubbles across the surface. One odd thing is that there is an absence of the symbols most commonly associated with the god Poseidon, which includes the dolphin, trident, and horse. Thinking in this way, one could say that the figure is closer to that of an atypical merman than the god Poseidon. (This is not meant to degrade the work, only to provoke thinking)

    The Artemision Bronze.
    The piece titled "Poseidon" remided me of an imgage of a bronze statue of the greek god Poseidon that was discovered a few years ago. This piece is not one-hundred percent Poseidon, because when it was discovered there was not a trident or lightning bolt found with the statue to say whether or not the statue was Poseidon or Zeus. Because Poseidon was the considered the patron god of the Artemision Straits and the surrounding area, this lends credit to the fact that this is a statue of Poseidon, but a trident (the symbol of the sea god) would obscure the face. Whereas a lightning bolt that would be held by Zeus would not obscure the face.

    "Hear, Poseidon, ruler of the sea profound, whose liquid grasp begirds the solid ground; who, at the bottom of the stormy main, dark and deep-bosomed holdest they watery reign. Thy awful hand the brazen trident bears, and sea’s utmost bound thy will reveres. Thee I invoke, whose steeds the foam divide, from whose dark locks the briny waters glide; shoe voice, loud sounding through the roaring deep, drives all its billows in a raging heap; when fiercely riding through the boiling sea, thy hoarse command the trembling waves obey. Earth-shaking, dark-haired God, the liquid plains, the third division, fate to thee ordains. ‘Tis thine, cerulean daimon, to survey, well-pleased, the monsters of the ocean play. Confirm earth’s basis, and with prosperous gales waft ships along, and swell the spacious sails; add gentle peace, and fair-haired health beside, and pour abundance in a blameless tide." - Orphic Hymn 17 to Poseidon
