Jeanie Johnston

I must say, I am a little bit disappointed - this is the figurehead I was so absorbed in that I almost missed an excellent photo opportunity. Apart from the mad frenetic look upon her face it would appear that this particular figurehead is not even carved out of wood. If you look closely you can see where the paint has chipped revealing what looks like fibreglass underneath. What is the world coming to when we can't even get a decent carved wooden figurehead any longer?
