President (1861-1865) Abraham Lincoln is regarded as one of our greatest
presidents. The original cast for this was taken in 1860 by Lenord
Volk. Of this process, letting plaster heat
up and harden on his face and then being pulled off with some of his hair
Lincoln stated "It was anything but agreeable". When Lincoln saw the final
bust he declared it "The Animal himself". Volk took the cast to use as
a model for the Statue of Lincoln at the Illinois state Capital in Springfield.
This cast has always been considered by sculptors and artists the most reliable document of Lincoln's face, and far more valuable than photographs, for it is the actual form. Sculptor Erick Erickson took the life mask as an exact impression of Lincoln's face and sculpted the hair, beard, eyes, and even skin texture and detail.
The mask is cast
in Ultra Cal, the hardest Gypsum product available It is then finished
in Bronze color , rubbed with an antiquing overlay to bring out the detail
and then sealed to protect it. The Bust measures 14" High X 11" Wide X
6 3/4" Deep and is approximately 14 pounds unpacked.
Lincoln can stand on a counter, bookshelf, desk or mantel or it can be hung on the wall and comes with a screw to do it.
