These glasses are named after the god of the sea
“Poseidon”, he who had the ability to unleash and calm
storms, cause earthquakes and to protect the navigation of
the sailors who passionately prayed him. It is important to
notice the extreme lightness of the glasses, made possible
by the fi ne fretwork. The two end pieces, embellished
with diamonds, take up the shape of the trident (weapon
used by Poseidon), connecting two oval shaped trims
and finely surrounded by diamonds. The micro-sculpture
and ornamentation of Poseidon represented in the
aspect of a bearded man holding a trident, whose strong
muscles betrayed by a slight swelling of the abdomen
that embodies his ancient origins. Accompanied by other
micro-sculptures of dolphins, hidden between trims and
gallery, that are only visible when the temple-eyewear
is closed. The ceramic inserts seen on the oval gallery
enhanced with the effect of bright colors, a dolphin that
wraps a trident in the middle of a coral-made perforation.
Not only the dolphin represents the forces of good, as
occurs when seawaters are calm, but a particular episode
rises it to the emblem of sentimental love.
The myth says that Poseidon, to convince the beautiful
Nereid Amphitrite to marry him, sends the Dolphin to
Mount Atlas. The god of the sea, grateful to him and for
the success of its mission, places him in the sky, creating
a constellation, but to complete the reading of the myth
is the coral, a symbol of life, considered a powerful
aphrodisiac that stimulates desire and produces fertility.
Its origins are incredible, it seems the result of contact
between a tiny marine twig and Medusa’s head, the
Gorgon which merged with Poseidon in the temple of
Athena; she created also the winged horse Pegasus and
the giant Chrysaor.
