This figurehead was made in 2012 for The Eleanor, a refitted tall ship now permanently docked at The Boston Tea Party Museum in downtown Boston Harbor.  Leon Poindexter, the replica ship’s builder  researched the original’s size and stance. All I had to do was bring Eleanor to life in mahogany. I make a clay model before carving the less forgiving mahogany.
