The bust was done by one of George’s sons, Richard, a well-known sculptor. The piece, however, has never been in the best condition. There are numerous scratches and scrapes on the surface. And most visibly, the top half of the left ear has always been missing. The Museum and Archives Committee has long wanted to have this piece repaired.
