Winged Seahorse Tiles

William De Morgan Fulham Period

The ancients believed seahorses carried the souls of dead sailors to the underworld.

William De Morgan winged sea horses and sea monster panel Fulham period

The sea horses and sea monster are a deep blue against an ocean of blue, turquoise, and sea green swirls.

The Mythology of the Deep was a popular Victorian theme, well before some of the Pre-Raphaelites, and certainly William De Morgan, were born. The friendly sea monster may well be a kraken. This 15-lined sonnet was written by Alfred Lord Tennyson and first published in 1830.

    The Kraken

    Below the thunders of the upper deep;
    Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
    His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
    The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
    About his shadowy sides: above him swell
    Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
    And far away into the sickly light,
    From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
    Unnumbered and enormous polypi
    Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
    There hath he lain for ages and will lie
    Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
    Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
    Then once by man and angels to be seen,
    In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

    ~Alfred Tennyson
