If you could design a trophy, what would it look like? Personally, I would suggest something grand, shiny and of a size that visitors to my home would notice, but not too overstated of course.
In the museum’s collection we hold quite an unusual trophy, something I would have never dreamt of. Commissioned in Scotland by the whiskey distiller Johnny Walker, it features a ram’s head. Yes, a ram’s head! And not only that, it doubles as a cigar box!
You don’t believe me? Take a look at our video on Youtube which also features in the eBook version of our new publication 100 Stories from the Australian National Maritime Museum.
