Bow view of Andreia, showing her wood and stone anchors in position. Two halves of wood closing around an elongated stone stock, lashed with rope. The shape of the arms has been taken from the many anchor depictions on coins and other Greek artwork. The Greek are thought to have been the inventors of the modern anchor.
