Savoie, Barque Du Leman


La Savoie is a Barque du Leman, a reproduction of the transport boats that once sailed on Lake Geneva (Lac Leman), Switzerland. She is placed inside an approximate 3 liter pharmaceutical bottle and displays workers unloading a cargo of rocks. The barque du leman had massive lateen sails to move the boats under what is often light winds on the lake. There are also long boards attached to the port and starboard side of the vessel which were used for the crew to move about the boat once she had a full load.
