Star of Tasmania
On 25th July 2003 the figurehead from the Aberdeen-built clipper ship Star of Tasmania, which was wrecked off New Zealand in 1868, arrived back in Aberdeen and was put on public display at the City's Maritime Museum. The 632 ton fully-rigged wool clipper was built in 1856 at the Alexander Hall shipyard.
In February 1868 she was driven ashore at Oamaru in a violent storm and was completely wrecked, with the loss of two of the 22 crew and two children. The figurehead was later salvaged by Captain William Sewell.
The cream and blue painted pine carving, which measures almost 2 metres in height, was found on a farm near Oamaru in the 1950s, blocking up a hole in the hedge. It was purchased by an antiques dealer, who sold it to a couple in Christchurch: they kept it in their back garden.
Later the figurehead was sold in Auckland, then auctioned by Sothebys and acquired by Aberdeen Maritime Museum.
