Ship of Ghouls

Metal straps joined together in the shape of skeletal boat, or a cage, suspended with wires from a ceiling
What do you think this is?

My polling place is in the student center of a small seminary in my neighborhood, and this piece of art was suspended above my head as I picked up my ballot.

Since it's a Christian seminary, I quickly figured out it's meant to be a boat, as in "fishers of men."

But doesn't it look a bit more like some type of medieval torture device?

I see a boat, but yes, it also looks like the outline of an iron maiden.
