Portrait based on a sculpted head approximation (wax work through Forensic Facial Reconstruction method) of a victim of the Vasa Royal Swedish warship shipwreck (1628).
Together with the wellpreserved ship, the wax works of the victims’ heads -created with the aforementioned method, based on sculls found in the wreckage and on general features of the era- are exhibited in VASA Museum in Stockholm.
Vasa warship sank during its maiden trip in 1628 after only 1.300 m. sail, foundered by a wind of medium strength.
The title refers to a lullaby of an anonymous composer of the Baroque era. (Alicante – Catalunya, ca 1700).
