Bust of William Shakespeare
Bust of William Shakespeare made in British Gypsum Plaster.
As with all Famous Faces there are objects around the base. For this bust we have included quill and ink, scrolls and books, the greek masks of comedy and tragedy, a crown, the famous Hamlet skull, the Capulet Rose and Montague Swords from Romeo and Juliet.
The etch around the base reads -
"TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE"
Height - 12cm
