The fact that it is very beautiful is clear to everyone but this particular piece is much more beautiful for me, because it reminds me of the amazing book of Jules Verne, "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" (Vingt mille lieues sous les mers).
The captain looks exactly like Captain Nemo, well at least he looks like the way I imagined him Great work!!!
Very nice. I'm curious as to what the gadgets on the port and starboard weather decks are. The one on the port deck reminds me of a pelorus, that was used for taking bearings. The starboard gadget appears to be a gun of some sort.
