The Seahorse, or hippocampus, has inspired imaginations for centuries, featuring in many wondrous legends and works of art. Sailors happily associated this little sea monster with the powers of the horse: strength, loyalty, good-fortune, and salvation. In reality, Seahorse is a patient creature, a unique marriage of grace and determination, able to anchor himself to the landscape or float upon the current. Seahorses are loving parents, but uniquely it is males who carry the young, making them symbols of fatherhood, care, and generosity. The spirit of gentleness and chivalry is embodied in this noble little fish.
