Considerar...


Explanation:
No estoy nada segura, habría que ver el contexto, pero ya que bust es tambien una escultura que representa la cabeza, hombros y pecho de alguién ¿Podría estar refiriéndose al mascarón de proa?
Lo siento, es lo unico que se me ocurre. No está en mis diccionarios, pero como nadie parece haber encontrado nada... Suerte

una escultura que representa la cabeza de mujer


Explanation:
a la proa como me parece. Según Collins Spanish Dictionary, ISBN 0-00-470295-6 se traduce como "pifia" (US) también. Por esa razon, como sé, se usa pronombre "she" en Inglés y no "it". Espero que te sirva. ¡Buena suerte, rosangela!

  -> Oh, really? But where are the confirmations, explanations & reference? Then, look at confidence level. Anyone can easily disagree, but where is your answer, Lesley Clarke?!
