CAST ORIGINALY IN 1785
George Washington(1732-1799) President (1789-1797) George Washington the First President of the United States of America. George Washington was selected for this office because he symbolized qualities of diiscepline, aristocratic duty, military orthodoxy and persistence in adversity .
The original cast for this was taken in 1785 by Jean Antoine Houdon when washington was 53. Houdin stated he " Had no idea of the majesty and grandure of Washingtons form and features untill he studied him as a subject.".
When Washington returned to Mount Vernon afrter the war, he was one of the most famous men in the world. Being before photography many artists clamored to capture his image which consumed much of his time. Washingtons coments were, "I am so hackneyed to the touches of painters' pencils that I am now altogether at thir beck, and sit like patience on a monument, whilst they are deliniating the lines of my face."
To save him time in sitting Washington agreed to having this mask made. It has been good fortunes of generations to have this important artifact as part of our national heritage.
The original cast has been restored and enhanced to show more of the head and neck. Also the Hair and eybrows have been recreated to create a very impresive display.
