Style: Realism Medium: Ceramic
Color:

I sculpted every detail of this ceramic bust of Mark Twain and hand-painted it with acrylics to resemble bronze with a dark brown patina. Size: 15 in. high, 12 in. wide, 12 in. depth. You can commission a replica of this sculpture cast in bronze metal. A bronze replica of this sculpture would be suitable for installation on a fixed base or plinth in an outdoor or indoor setting. Only a very limited number of these bronze busts will be made at a Northern California foundry as they are ordered. I will sign, date and number each bust. Contact me for more information.

SAM CLEMMONS NEVER LOOKED BETTER. HE SAID HE REGRETTED BECOMING A NEWSPAPER MAN BUT DID SO BECAUSE HE COULD NOT FIND LEGITIMATE EMPLOYMENT. HE WISELY PAID FOR A REPLACEMENT AND DODGED THE CIVL WAR, BUT HE ASSUMED THE COST OF PUBLISHING GRANT'S MEMORIES WHEN NO ONE ELSE WOULD. THAT NEARLY BROKE HIM.

WHOA, No.

#1 Samuel Langhorne CLEMENS
#2 did not pay for a replacement in the civil war. He joined the ranks of a local missouri militia near his boyhood hometown for three weeks before deserting and leaving with his Lincoln-campaigning brother Orion Clemens for Nevada territory, where Orion had been appointed territorial secretary by the new president.
#3 Mark Twain did assume the cost of publishing General Grant's autobiography, but made a fortune in so doing, even while making Grant's widow enough money to keep her out of the poorhouse. His downfall as a publisher was the official biography of the (then) pope, and the "library of wit and humor" project.
