This head is the second casting in bronze from the original stone master head (in stone) by the sculptor. The casting was supervised by the sculptor and was cast and mounted at the Modern Art Foundry, 1870, Queens, NY. The original stone master head of Audubon (ca. 1950's) was sent to Audubon's home at "Mill Grove," Pennsylvania.
