Ahoy! What I Spied there Across the Way

Each day I've been here I've noticed this interesting ship perched elegantly among some other materials. It perches elegantly in our storage facility, and, being it is not a medical instrument, I find it intriguing as part of our collection.

You might recall mention of the School of Dentistry's sister school, Hokkaido University School of Dentistry, during our recent acquisition of dental school materials.  Well, it turns out this mirrored tortoiseshell model was a gift from the sister school.

Not knowing much about nautical vessels, I wonder what are those spires near the stern of the ship?
