Throughout the history of wooden ship building, ships' bows were fitted with figureheads to act as lookouts and to lead sailors safely on their way. Animals were the first subject of choice for figurehead design, but by the mid-1700s, human-design figureheads became the new style,and often cherubic angels, known as "Neptune's Wooden Angels" offered the sailor protection. Later, mermaids and women were popular figurehead choices despite the superstitious beliefs that sailors held regarding women and their adverse effects on a ship's voyage.
