I have to admit, it wasn't until I found the roses on her bonnet and double checked the title before I realized the individual on this piece was a woman. Originally, I assumed it was a slightly effeminate buccaneer of some sort. I'm reminded of that famous Austin Powers quote "That's not your mother, it's a man, baby!" Well, I feel we can forgive her appearance by way of the very empowered, rather determined look on her face. Though it may be a look of satisfaction after pulverizing you with a frying pan after a long night at the pub.
