Poseidon was one of the twelve Olympian gods from Greek mythology and he was called the "God of the Sea." In this book he returns to our contemporary world and through a mix of mythology and his experiences in the present, he explores all the philosophical questions that were relevant in his 'previous' life. Other characters and stories from mythology appear also in the 7 chapters that make up this book, including Leda and the Swan, Prometheus, Jesus and Aphrodite. Drawn by the writer in sparse black and white drawings and combined with handwritten text under each work, this is a curiously compelling and humorous philosophical meditation located somewhere between the age of Greek mythology and our own contemporary time.
Individual pages 9"(h) x 7"(w), the books' 72 pages extend to 42ft.
