This boat is inspired by the penteconter, a forerunner of the Athenian bireme and trireme, an ancient Greek galley used since the archaic period.
The penteconter was a long range ship, used for sea trade, piracy, warfare and exploration, capable of transporting freight or troops.
The evil eye on the side of the hull, a common motif, designed to warn and frighten the enemy!
All our bronze items are cast for us, in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method. As they are not mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in patination and colouring. Each piece is, therefore, unique. Also, please allow for variations of a millimetre or two from the specified height.
