Tuesday/ King Neptune

Here is the artwork from the boarded-up Coastal Kitchen restaurant on 15th Avenue.

The art features King Neptune, the ancient Roman god of the sea. I think it’s King Neptune. There is also Poseidon*, the Greek god of the sea, storms, earthquakes and horses.

*In the Oscar-winning movie The Poseidon Adventure (1972), the SS Poseidon was making her way to Athens, Greece.

Coastal Kitchen on an almost-deserted 15th Ave. ‘Essential Trips Only’, says the No 10 bus approaching in the distance. ‘Even the darkest night will end, and the sun will rise’, says the lettering on the main window of the restaurant.
Let’s see: a banjo-playing narwhal, a tambourine-playing mermaid, and a concertina-playing walrus. King Neptune (middle panel, a little squished) is reading from a scroll.
The walrus and the mermaid, with a harmonica-playing seagull.
