A prized ram – Tales from ‘100 Stories’

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.

100 Stories from the Australian National Maritime Museum is available as a free eBook for iPad in the iBookstore or for purchase in our museum shop.
