The story behind the image

When we visited Rome in Italy in 2005, we simply had to see the historical attractions of the city, including the famous Trevi Fountain in the city center. It is a tourist magnet for sure, but it’s not too bad actually because the tourists distribute across the city. 🙂

In Greek mythology, Oceanus is the god of the great river Oceanos that encircles the world, and a powerful member of the Titans. Throughtout the centuries, he has been depicted many times, but this is probably the most popular (and best known) sculpture. It shows Oceanus as he tames the waters that fill the small square in front of him. As always, Wikipedia knows the full story.
