This glorious piece, with its two sails, 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, was designed to warn and frighten the enemy.

It is 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.
