This is one of three Doner sculptures installed together- Angry Neptune, Salacia and Strider.
"Angry Neptune was made as a statement about the obscene gestures the human species has repeatedly made toward the sea. Robbing the shores of fish, sending plastics into the deep seas, spilling toxins into the water, etc. I feel his rage is palpable."
