As you might expect I have turned my little issue on the rocks into a Objet d’art. I call it SCREAM SHOE, the story of pain and misery while being thrust on the rocks after spending it’s life drowning under water. With one purpose in life, to protect her Keel. She will sacrifice her life for worms and rot, and sadly Scream Shoe’s life was cut short in last weeks mishap.
BUT, she shall live on, as a reminder and work of art on board as a statement of resiliency, and homage to her builders.
The contrast of crushed copper, with the oak grain violently thrashed across her brow.
Her exposed empty nail holes paint a tragic end. A hollow cry for help, and yet proud to save the ship.
And thus proof in the wisdom of Hector Urquhart and his famous quote. “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”
