Mermaid Ship's Figurehead wood carving by Virginia artists Jac and Patricia Johnson. This exceptional carving was created specifically for our gallery and is reminiscent of the figureheads that adorned the great sailing ships of the 19th century. The full-bodied mermaid figure stands tall and leaning slightly forward as if attached to the bow of a ship; but then made whole with the addition of a scrolling tail to complete the mermaid body. Painted antique white with hand-waxed finish.
Height: 61"; Depth: 35"
READY TO SHIP -- This figurehead must be professionally crated and shipped on a pallet by freight. Allow approximately 2 weeks for crating and shipping after the cost estimate is approved.
