One of some old pictures that used to be in my older gallery (along with the military museum). I moved them, they show an old situation.

Maybe 'd better take the picture off, so as not to hurt your feelings?

By the way, are there a lot of non-human artefacts? I'd love to see them.

I am most disappointed that you do not identify properly a rare, indeed unique human artifact that played such a big role in naval history, the only surviving galley in the world. A galley was the oar-driven warship which was the main fighting ship of the principal navies about the Mediterranean Sea until late 17. even 18. century. In its hey-day all the important states around that Sea had hundreds of these venerable warships. Now, your photo shows the unique, the only surviving example, that is the Imperial Galley specially built for Sultan Mehmed IV, who reigned between 1648-1687.
