Figurehead of the "Star of India"

It actually depicts "Euterpe", the former name of the Star.
Euterpe was one of the muses of Greek Mythology.
When later poets assigned roles to each of the Muses, she was the muse of music.

A good looking Bowsprit. I like David's "tone" and "key" reference.

Euterpe's outline does set the tone, and the key, of this fine image,,
