Neptune and Triton

Neptune and Triton is an early sculpture by the Italian artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini. It is displayed in the Victoria and Albert Museum of London. It was carved from marble and stands to be 71.7 inches in height. I liked this sculpture because it shows great emotions between both Neptune and Triton. Neptune's creased brow gives a sense of his fierce strength. His stance is set in stone, which shows his divine power. Triton looks somewhat passive while he is grabbing Neptune's thigh. His face looks to be full of anxiety as if  he knows that he should obey whatever Neptune commands him to do.
