The first great ship to be completely designed and constructed by the French. The ship was completed in 1636 in the La Roche Bernard shipyard and was one of the most imposing vessels of that time.
Special attention was paid to the sculptural decoration of the ship which was carried out by sculptors in wood. The numerous decorative elements in gilded cast metal are accurately reproduced.
This model is outstanding because of the quality and variety of the woods which have been used.
Fittings are included.
