Provenance: Purchased in Australia.

Jimilu Mason’s original bust of President Johnson was a clay model cast in plaster, then in bronze. “Though Johnson was reported by the Associated Press to have quipped to the sculptor ‘I must say you certainly got the large Johnson ears,’ he actually considered the finished bronze bust a favorite likeness. So pleased was he, in fact, that he presented miniature copies in simulated bronze to close friends and heads of state.” Ref: US Senate.
