Mount Vernon 2012 Annual Ornament


George and Martha Washington were renowned for the abundant hospitality that they offered at Mount Vernon. As George Washington's status as a world figure emerged, the numbers of visitors to his famous home also grew with each passing year. Journal entries and reminiscences left by friends, family members and visitors offer vivid and invaluable glimpses into the Washingtons' home.   Today, as in Washington's time, Mount Vernon remains a centerpiece of hospitality and heritage which honors the man who was "First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen".

Houdon Bust of George Washington, 24"
Images of George Washington abound but the most faithful likeness remains a terra cotta bust created by Jean Antoine Houdon. The French sculptor visited Mount Vernon in October 1785 to carefully observe Washington's movements and expressions, even making a plaster "life mask" of Washington's face to accurately preserve every detail. Washington was then 53 years old. When completed, Houdon gave the bust to Washington and it has remained at Mount Vernon for over two centuries. This high-density composite resin replica of the Houdon bust is mounted on a round off white pedestal style base with a diameter of 8".   The depth of the bust at its deepest point is 12" and the overall height is 24".
