This mariner’s benediction was given to the captain and crew of a ship when leaving dock to wish them good fortune and a safe journey. The design is based on a 19th century clipper in full sail from a stone carving found in the museum associated with the ruined Carmelite church in Lisbon. The church is kept unrestored as a memorial to the devastating earthquake of 1755. An ideal gift to give to a sailor or fisherman. This nautical blessing could also be given at a farewell ceremony or as retirement present.

Fixing Points: One hole: under the top rigging between the two tall masts
