Folk Art Whirligig, Whale, Man in Tin Hat Cranking Propeller
New England, Circa 1880 to 1890

Folk Art Whirligig, Whale, Man in Tin Hat Cranking Propeller
New England, Circa 1880 to 1890
Anonymous, entire view 1

Wood, tin and paint, tin can hat, carved, very good condition
A black man (probably a slave) standing atop the large sperm whale cranks the large
propeller shaft as the overseer appears to be raising a switch. The imagery may speak
to the system of oppression that evolved within the 19th century whale fishery. Whaling
ports were refuge for runaway slaves who sometimes enlisted on a whaling vessel to
avoid capture. The Nantucket and New Bedford whale fisheries (Naming just two ports)
employed large numbers of sailors of color after slavery was abolished; also, Cape
Verdeans and Azoreans that arrived on whaling ships from their home ports. An
unfortunate history to say the least!
Very good original condition call for
details. (Dimensions: 34.5” H by 52” W by 31” D.)
