Portrait bust of bust of President Abraham Lincoln statue is imported from Italy created by the Egregia workshop and its artisans. Hand created of bonded marble and crafted one at a time with impeccable detail. Then mounted to a genuine alabaster museum quality base. This bonded white marble bust commemorates a man many Americans consider to be one of their greatest presidents. Abraham Lincoln guided the nation through the Civil War. As president, this former Illinois lawyer and congressman ensured the strength of his Republican Party, issued the Emancipation Proclamation, and succeeded in the preservation of the Union. In April 1865, Lincoln's life ended at the hands of an assassin, but his hope survived, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that the government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish form the earth.
