The exaggeration of girth and width is perfect - he is a picture of 'horse power'! That head and neck, man - so nice! :D

Why is the sculpture named Poseidon?
Reply
:iconjordanabernethy:
JordanAbernethy Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Poseidon in Greek lore was a god of earthquakes and horses...and later the sea when the Greeks became sea faring. One of the accounts written tell of Poseidon chasing Demeter who had taken the form of a mare, so Poseidon took the form of a horse and chased after her. They eventually foaled Arion, a talking horse who was also very fast.

Probably because he's associated with horses. There was a racehorse named Poseidon too.

It turns out that Poseidon is actually also a god of horses and horse is one of his symbols.
