The beautifully executed artisanal handicraft in this folk art depiction of a sailing ship presents the ecclesiastical colours of Advent in the blue sea and purple hull of the ship. Sagittarius, the zodiac sign for December 19th, sits in the top left corner and the Roman numerals for 19 in the top right.
