Bust of Michael Collins handmade in British gypsum plaster

.

These busts are hand made at the Revival Arts of Bath studios in Bath.

The soldier and politician Michael Collins was shot aged 32 in an ambush during the Irish Civil War. He was pivotal to the emergence of the free Irish nation; a romantic figure who still draws crowds to his graveside at Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin.

For this bust we have included these objects around the base - The General Post Office in flames, an armoured card, a soldier, central Dublin in ruins, Kitty Kiernan (fiancé of Collins), a revolver, his hat and an Irish harp.

The etch around the base reads - "GIVE US BACK OUR COUNTRY TO LIVE IN, TO GROW IN..TO LOVE" 

Height - 14cm

Each bust is 14 cm high with flat back and felt base - great affordable gifts for the historian. All busts are supplied in a Famous Faces gift boxes.
