Model of 15th century Ming Treasure Ship built by Dave Anderson Bill Conroy Dick Walton and Sergio Aragones 2005

To give viewers an idea of the immensity of this ship from the 15th century fleet of Ming Admiral Zheng He, this model is built to the same scale as the model of Columbus' Santa Maria in the lower left corner of the image and the model of the clipper ship "Cutty Sark" in the right foreground.

 

Photographed at the Ventura County Maritime Museum in Ventura, California. The size of the museum's collection of ship models is second only to the U. S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, MD in the US.
