About My Design

Traditionally the hippocamp is shown with a fish tail, but I opted for a seal tail. Dappled horse blends into spotted seal tail. Anyone that has every fed a horse knows they naturally have short whiskers, so when combined with a seal, a hippocamp should have quite the set. Hippocamps are from Greek and Pheonician mythology, which also had fish tailed lions, leopards, and bulls, but the horse is the one most frequently depicted. (yes, these are pictures of an actual finished sculpture.)

What a beautiful sculpture! I think if you made it into a figurine through PT you could add more to the design though. Possibly make him coming out of the water, or riding on a wave

I like the idea of a seal's tail. It seems to fit well. So much so that I didn't realize the change until I read your notes on the figure!
