Statues, Carvings - Photos of Aloha

Jack Whitehead was commissioned to carve a replica (of the one on the Ship, Ellisa) figurehead for the Falls Of Clyde - the only surviving fully-rigged, four masted sailing ship left in the world - built in 1878 in Port Glasgow, Scotland. He went to Hawaii and spent many a long month in the tropical sun completing the carving of aÊ magnificent woman, which now can be seen at the bow of this tall ship permanently moored in Honolulu Harbor and now part of the Hawaii Maritime Center.

Named after a waterfall up the River Clyde, the Falls of Clyde was originally a full-rigged ship designed for global trade, later re-rigged as a Bark.
