Hand Carved Skippers Pulpit Statue, 1850 Normandy
In the early years of 1850 this pulpit was created for a shippers community in Normandy. There the priest spoke his prayers and congratulations about the skippers. In these coastal regions many men risked their lives at sea as fishermen. The pulpit is therefore beautifully decorated to a life on the coast. Thus the angel serves as a figurehead so that she can watch over the welfare of the skippers. At her feet are detailed waves that she almost seems to walk on. And on both sides there are nets to see as a reference to the fishermen. The professional has made this beautiful work with great attention to detail.
