Description

The plaster statuette depicts Abraham Lincoln at three different stages of life. The first Lincoln is young, beardless, and casually dressed. He holds a boulder high above his head with one hand. The second Lincoln is dressed in a tie and jacket and holds a boulder above his head with two hands. The third Lincoln is dressed in coat, tie, and hat. He is fully bearded and holds a boulder cradled at his chest. The piece is mounted on a wooden base. It is possibly a work by John McClarey.
