The model represents a Tserniki vessel with "pena" rigging ( furled sails).
It's not known whether it was an expression of the local shipbuilding of f lesbos island, but the boat is found in many photos in ports of the island as well as also in the photographs in the book "Focee" (Félix Sartiaux) referred to the evacuation of Phocaea (Asia Minor) and the transfer of refugees to Lesbos .
