Carved wooden panel
From the recovery of the Mary Rose, a tudor warship that sank in 1545 during the battle of the solent.
One of only two carved panels found, this incomplete panel is carved in oak to show a female head in profile facing right behind an arch. She is wearing a coif and depicted a very classical style, typical of the first half of the sixteenth century. This panel has been partially destroyed by worms, probably Teredo worms, with holes clearly visible along one edge.
This and many more of the carpenters artefects (including his skull) were modelled using photogrammetry and can be found at: www.VirtualTudors.org
