Folk Art, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

We saw a lot of FOLK ART at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. This is a figurehead from the bow of a whaling ship. My BFF’s grandfather was a whaler from Portugal. Her daughter works at the museum now.

This is lovely – so intricate and a nice soft photo of it.

Years ago, when I lived in a big house, I used to collect things. Figurines of women was one of them. This is really a lovely piece of art. Beautiful. Yet, what I collected was never anything this size. The way you have it processed, it looks small. Then I got to wondering why it was sat on some sort of block. Then I read your narrative. lol

This piece is in excellent shape considering it must have seen some years on an actual working whaling ship. Nice job!
