Seahorse symbolizes bravery at sea

Beneath waters that sparkle like blue topaz, Poseidon's abode thrives with a magnificent and magical kingdom. Deep in the fathoms on the ocean floor, remains an ancient temple, lying undiscovered since the mists of time. Colourful fish of all kinds, dart and glide in and out and between the mystical ruins, like a vibrant city.

In the heart of the temple, a fresco adorns a sheltered wall, undisturbed for aeons, yet still an entity ever present with life. Delicate seahorses, stylised elaborately in graceful poise, shine with rainbow hues. Their serene faces, aglow with the soft light of ancient gilded gold leaf, behold a captivating ambience of the mystique and the divine, in their eyes.

A sacred blossom is gently held by each seahorse, perhaps as an offering to the deities of the ocean. While at the centre of the fresco, an open flower reflects meaning of an open heart through which to receive wisdom. Turquoise shades further signify homage to the faithful heart.

Aquatic creepers encircle the design, their undulant leaves seem to swim, journying for eternity. Greek and Roman myths both associate the seahorse as the mount of Poseidon and Neptune, gods of the ocean. The seahorse also has been known to symbolize bravery at sea.
