The Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria approach the American coast in this book sculpture. The three ships fight the choppy waves as Columbus stands on deck. Natives sit on the shore line. The book used is "A Book of Famous Explorers", 1947.
You probably can't see it from the photo, but these are some of the most detailed ships I've ever done. There's wire in the masts, so they're extra sturdy. There is also a bit of quilling around the bow of the two larger ships. Finished with a UV gloss spray to protect against moisture and time.
