The photos shown are of the actual bust from various angles.

It measures 32 inches high, 28 inches wide, and 15 inches deep.  The head measures 9 inches wide at the ears, 13 inches hair to chin, and 11 inches nose tip to back of the head. The small pedestal base measures 10-1/2 inches square.  It weighs about 200 pounds.

The carving is extremely well-rendered with high polish on the face details and only slightly rougher on the suit to enhance facial detail.
