Poseidon, god of the seas and storms, son of Rhea and Cronus, to whom I give the sea when the world was divided into three.
Returning to Greek mythology, transporting it to the current time and analyzing the situation we are going through the deterioration and pollution of the sea, not only nationally if not globally; sketch intent is to raise awareness to prevent further contamination of our oceans. One of the main factors is the dumping of garbage and toxic waste into the sea; the image can be seen Poseidon something furious trying to clean any debris that have been thrown into the sea in the background is one of the marine species that currently are on the verge of extinction this is the red coral, scientifically corallium called rubrum.
The message we want to send is that returning these fantastic creatures of Greek mythology, history and the world, consciousness is believed to prevent massive pollution of the sea, its flora and fauna and thus also not forget those cultures as great as were the Greeks.
