when Washington was 53. After the Revolutionary War, he was one of the most famous men in the world. Being before photography, many artists clamored to capture his image. This consumed much of his time and Washington was quoted as saying "I am so hackneyed to the touches of painter's pencils that I am now altogether at their beck and sit like patience on a monument, whilst they are delineating the lines of my face." To save time in sitting, Washington agreed to having this mask made. It has been the good fortune of generations to have this important artifact as part of our national heritage.

This started with an actual life cast mask of George Washington. Then it has been sculpturally enhanced by myself, Erick Erickson. The hair and eye brows have been added, and the eyes have been sculpted open, with the vision of Independence.. I set the head at an upward cocked angle. We are accustomed to seeing Washington this way. Just about every formal portrait of him is in this posture. His wig is perfect, you can even see the bow in his pony tail over his shoulder.

This work of art would be great for your Home, Office, School, Public Building or Library. It will serve as an Inspiration to All.

The finished piece is cast in USG's Tuf-Cal gypsum cement,and it is fiber filled and has polymer additives to assure it will last forever.
