Made from the 1860 Life Mask

Abraham Lincoln(1809-1865) 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.
