Theme for my new plaster relief sculpture

My new sculpture’s theme is based on Grecian and Babylonian mythology. The figures are gods,  Mermaid and Merman figures Posidon and Tiamat are surrounded by schools of fish and jellyfish. They are essentially man and woman. Their sensual relationship, in this sculpture, is symbolically narrated through imagery. The fish eggs  as fertility symbols and somewhat phallic jellyfish,  lead the viewers eye around the double-sided relief sculpture.
The couple are crowned by the sacred Octopus.
The sculpture stands at one point six five meters tall and will be molded and cast in bronze on an edition of six. The Patination of the sculpture will be dark browns to black with a verdigis in the recesses. It will stand as a water feature.
