To start with, although it is over and done now, I recently had my work at the Italian Festival at Laguna Gloria Art Museum in Austin Texas. It was an interesting mix of olive oil and art. Not my stuff, just the random vendors at this fund raiser. But I do have to say, some of the best blood orange olive oil I have ever tasted from Con Olio!
So in my research for creating some "Italian" themed artwork, looking up aspects of Neptune, who is the Lord of Horses, I came across the name Neptune Equestor. Apparently, Neptune is also the god of Horse-Racing! Which as we all know from Ben Hur was very very popular in the Roman Colliseum. So next time you are at the track, do some homage to Neptune Equestor and see how you fare on the ponies. :)
