The first one looks so sad, should she have been guiding a ship? But I love the bottom one!

The bottom one is very- even startlingly- lifelike.

I wonder if she was the ship captain's wife? It does look very much like a portrait of a real person.

Wife or sweetheart- or even daughter. I agree, I think it's a portrait.

I saw her as apprehensive, but it provoked the same question: would you want to sail with someone who just knows it is all going to go terribly wrong?

That was my thought too! Especially when sailors are supposed to be so superstitious, who would want such a sad figurehead?
