Vintage Hood Ornaments

For thousands of years, sailing ships featured ornate figureheads to ward off evil spirits and ensure safe journeys. Many of these figureheads were elegantly sculpted women and angels with outstretched arms pointing the way. These are what I envision when admiring vintage hood ornaments.

From the elegant to the abstract, the hood ornament is one of my favorite details of any vintage vehicle.
