I have been thinking a lot about marble busts lately. Busts feel so classic and timeless. I remember my mom buying me a bust of Beethoven to place on my piano. I gazed at the small little bust and thought how beautiful it was. Now I dream of busts sitting on my make believe fireplace or dresser. In Blueprint this month, they showed a bust of Diana with necklaces draped around her neck. Try scarves and hats for an equally inventive organizational method.
Now a days you don’t have to buy a real marble bust to get this classic look. Now most inexpensive busts are made using a plaster type cast. Look to spend around a $100 for a mid-sized bust. My picks above and below. The busts I’ve chosen are from two different sites: statues.com and sculpturechest.com.
