Originally, it was a merchant ship with the usual fashionable decorations on its hull. After purchasing the Mayflower the Puritans would not have had the necessary capital to alter the ship. They would have felt nothing but relief to have found a vessel, though second-hand, that was of sufficiently robust build to take them across the Atlantic. Because of their religious beliefs they would have not replenished the decorations, preferring instead to let them fade, believing in simplicity in all things. Another factor forgotten by modern artists is that the journey across the Atlantic would have been wearing on all exterior parts of the ship, fading colours, including the flags which would also be torn and weatherbeaten. The painting depicts the flags torn, and decorations faded.

 

Some paintings show the Mayflower as having no portals in its flanks. This has to be an error. As a Merchant Ship in its previous role, it would have had portals along its flanks, enabling the merchantmen to fire cannon against marauding pirates.

 

It is also worth pointing out that the Pilgrim Fathers would have had to man the sails themselves. Everyone aboard knew they were not going back, they were on a one-way ticket to an unknown land, and it was for this reason no British sailor would have agreed to accompany them. With this in mind, Aldus, the artist, has portrayed the more physically fit Pilgrims among the ship's rigging, securing the mainsales. On a humorous note, several of the Pilgrims on deck can be seen gesticulating to those up on the rigging, giving unwanted advice on how the terrified Pilgrims should go about their extremely hazardous tasks. Everyone's an expert on matters they know nothing about!

 

In spite of terrific hardships suffered by all those on board, the painting displays hope ahead as the sun rises over the ocean, its rays vaulting to the heavens above, signalling God's wish for their future success. A lone seagull can be seen, a sign that land is not far away.

 

History records how well that tiny vessel succeeded in carrying the Pilgrim fathers to their historic destiny, establishing the largest democratic country in the world – THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
