George Washington.--The Father of his Country. This great national work was executed by Hiram Powers, the great American Sculptor, at Florence, Italy, from a single block of Serravezza marble. It is after Houdon's model, larger than life size, and is universally conceded the most faithful likeness of Washington extant. [P. 12; engraving on P. 12 is signed "M. Orr, N.Y." and depicts a large bust of Washington on a pedestal of about four feet in height, surrounded by admirers.]
