Santisima Madre by nosredna1313 Santisima Madre by nosredna1313

Drawing referenced from a model ship built by my father.

The "Santisima Madre" (translation: Most Holy Mother) was a Spanish galleon in the late 1600's... other than it going down in a storm, there's very little information on it. The ship's figurehead is of an eagle and the ship is decorated with many other eagles as well as images of Mary and cherubs. Heavily armed.

Done for a tattoo-themed contest on Threadless.com
PLEASE VOTE! SERIOUSLY TAKE A MINUTE. NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET... THEY'RE BASTARDS OVER THERE. THANKS!

This is such a charmed idea, it rather gives me a Marie Antoinette vibe.

Yeah... I'm well aware that it's Mexican... but there's a good solid link there still, I think.

Thanks! And to think... I almost went with a plain skeleton. Knew something was lacking though... the Day of the Dead skull makeup proved to be FAR more attractive.
