In sculptural terms, a ‘bust’ is a representation of a person’s head and shoulders, be they your late grandmother or a famous artist, politician or Greek philosopher. The bust I will write about today is that of a white plaster bust of William Shakespeare, the famous English poet and playwright. I’m a writer and poet myself and thus appreciate the works and the resulting inspiration, that the greats from the past can bestow upon modern writers. What better catalyst for creative literature than the Bard himself?

This white plaster bust of William Shakespeare is hand sculpted by artists based in the United States. The bust has then been cast in resin whilst attached to the stand you see in the image below the bust itself.
