Pigeon deposits aside, I like the take you did on this...focusing on the tool of trade that Capt Cook would use rather than focusing on the whole.

Bonus points for anyone that was not in the Navy that knows what the name of the tool is or what it is used for

I like the way you've taken just a small portion of this statue, good job.

And, it's a compass/divider... don't think it has a more "technical" name..

Thanks ohenry, Patman10 and muffins^
I would have to go with it being a compass and that it is used for plotting distance and course on a map (I think)

I've always thought it was called a divider. I use one in leatherwork but on a map you divide the plotted course to estimate how long to traverse the line. or no?

love the patina on the statue!

interesting composition and the focusing is very good. I like the colors of the copper's patina and even of the pigeons deposit...

Well done

Thanks Grif, Barb, Jenn and Zaplig. The statue as a whole is impressive, but I thought I would post this image as I thougth it was a little different and would be more interesting.
