NEPTUNE and POSEIDON
Neptune and Poseidon are the Roman and Greek Gods of the sea and water. The similarity in depiction over the centuries is incredible, almost like our version of this God is better than yours, but then they ended up being virtually identical. However you interpret history and cross pollination of beliefs, the symbolism is fantastic. It has inspired us, as no doubt it inspired the artists who carved the magnificent statues on this page. Put these images and beliefs together with that of mermaids, and that gives us a rich picture of life under the sea for those who choose to believe. Leading to sailors to make figureheads to put their ships under protection of the Gods, or at least appease them during their passages.
