HMS Warrior: Figurehead of Theseus

Another piece Dad is working on, this is his first-ever figure sculpt. It's a figurehead of Theseus to go on the bow of Dad's model of the HMS Warrior (1781.) Dad is proud of this piece, and he should be rightly so, especially considering this is not only his first figure sculpt, but that it's carved from wood!
So that makes two things I have yet to try: Sculpting an entire figure and carving wood.

  1. By a strange coincidence my Father was also a great boat modeller (also balsa and tissue paper planes). I often think about him as I cobble together my models and what he would think of my attempts.

    I think you and your Dad should be rightly proud of this figurehead.
