Nautical ship figurehead Statue with crown wall hanging French guiding woman of the sea shabby French chic distressed Nordic figure home decor anita spero design
measures: 36" tall and 14" wide.
I painted this beautiful piece in beachy-shabby tones. Sea foam- blues with hints of green, gold, whites and I gave her a very cracky distressed appearance. I used a technique to give her a lot of water aged distressing and a rust finish. Her skin has a great natural tone to it, which I personally mixed.
I made her tall beautiful rusty aged crown which is embellished with a large rhinestone seahorse and rhinestone trim.
The finishing touch is the rhinestone trim on the dress by the neckline and waist. In the center top and waist there are 2 high end vintage rhinestone jewelry pieces.
She is amazing and large. The scrolling decoration on each side has been fully painted in my own liquid gold. Her beautiful hair was painted in the same color mixture.
Why the eeriness to the eyes? I wanted to keep with what these figureheads signify. I did not want her to come out to prissy pretty. These figureheads represented something important to the men on the ship. I wanted to give her that sea worthy appeal.
What a unique piece over your mantel or headboard. Fantastic in a game room or bar.
She has the look of a heavy statue, but i made from a lightweight reason. She does come with a hook on the back..
Add her to any style in your home. Something this unique fits well anywhere.
*She does stand out from the wall. Just like any ship figure would in a collection.
