Serendipitous Art: Copper-clad Rudder (March 9, 2014)

I've recently visited the Maritime Museum in San Francisco a couple of times. My attention has been focused on the beautiful murals and mosaics there, but among the displays is a charred rudder fragment from the Niantic, a ship turned into a hotel that burned in the Great Fire of 1851. This piece was pulled from the mud in 1978. Unintended art.
