Les Tonnerres de Brest 2012
Pendant une semaine le Port de Brest a accueilli plus de 900 bateaux de différents pays pour les Fêtes Maritimes des Tonnerres de Brest qui ont lieu tous les 4 ans

Brest Maritime Festival
Every four year the harbour in Brest welcomes about 950 boats from all around the world .
For one week Brest is transformed into the biggest port of the world.
Hundred-year-old sailing boats and other remarkable vessels.
Musical performances and the backdrop of villages draped in the colours of the world.

What I find most interesting is that generally these pieces are unique carvings on a single piece of wood. Thanks for sharing.

I like this figurehead!! It looks right at home on a boat and if I owned a boat that had a figurehead... I'd want this to be the inspiration for it. Like a youthful Neptune.
