the triton (sintra)

In Greek mythology, Triton is the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite and lives with them in a golden palace in the depths of the sea. He rides the waves on horses and sea monsters and he carries a twisted conch shell, upon which he blows either violently or gently, to stir up or calm the waves. Triton is represented as having the body of a man with the tail of a fish, but sometimes also with the forefeet of a horse.

Hi Luis,

I just found the original! Very nice. I would have probably posted the whole image in the Challenge, although your crop gave promines to the carving. I've been to Sintra (and many other places in Portugal) many years ago and I enjoyed immensely. Your gallery captures it very well.
