Prototype Blaine Gibson bust from the attraction featuring an audio-animatronic version of President Abraham Lincoln. Originally showcased as the prime feature of the State of Illinois Pavilion at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, the overall theme of the show dealt with inspiration, justice and the meaning of the U.S. Constitution. Lincoln’s face was created by sculptor and Disney Legend, Blaine Gibson, using a copy of a life mask of Lincoln made by Leonard Volk in Chicago in 1860. The bust is constructed of rigid polyfoam that has been meticulously hand-painted and detailed. Exhibits minor paint chips and scuffs but remains in very good condition. Measures 12 in. tall x 7 ½ in. wide x 10 ½ in. deep.
