FIGUREHEADS

I have always had a fascination with figureheads, seeing ships in paintings, photos, books with a figurehead gave it a majestic look to me. In some cultures If a ship was to sink the sailors would be guided by the figurehead to rest on the other side of life, however if the ship did not have a figurehead, those souls would roam the seas forever. I took that and created these pieces, putting on them the weight of all those souls.
