Pauwels Casteels painted at least seven versions of the Triumph of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, and Amphitrite, the most beautiful of the Nereids. This triumphal, processional ride shows the newly wed couple in a magnificent chariot, surrounded by sea creatures, such as Nereids (sea nymphs),Tritons (half man half fish) and Hippocamps (fish-tailed horses that are pulling their carriage).
