Abraham Lincoln Restored Life Mask 1860
Eyes Restored Finaly after 140 Years



George Washington (1732 - 1799)

George Washington was the first President of the United States of America. The original version of this life cast was taken in 1785 by Jean Antiine Houdon, when Washington was 53. After the Revolutionary War, he was one of the most famous men in the world. Being before photography, many artists clamoured 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 deliniating 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.
