EYES RESTORED FINNALY AFTER 140 YEARS
 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. It has been used for the Lincoln Memorial and The hall of Presidents at Disney parks.
When Volk took the first positive cast from the mold he felt he had to leave his hand on the piece so he gouged Lincoln's eyes out with his thumbs and said "There now he can See". So for the last 140 years the best cast of our great Lincoln has looked like a victim in a horror film. It has always been difficult for me to look past this and see the greatness of the man . I could just not get past the terror of this image.
This mask has been enhanced by artist Erick Erickson to create a very impressive
display. He has maintained all of the detail of the original cast and then sculpted Lincoln's eyes closed as they would have been in the original cast if it had not been altered. Erick has also added Hair as he wore it in 1860. The result is now when you look at the piece it is Abraham Lincoln just as he was at the age of 51.
Now you can own this wonderful representation of our Sixteenth President. It would be great for your Home, Office, School, Public Building or Library.
