Our bronze desk bust pays homage to human rights visionary and activist Frederick Douglass (1818-1895). Frederick Douglass was an American social reformer, orator, writer and statesman. After escaping from slavery, he became a leader of the abolitionist movement, gaining note for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writing. Bust features famous Douglass quotation: "A man who will not fight for himself when he has the means of doing so, is not worth being fought for by others." Each bronze sculpture is originated, cast and hand finished by a talented sculptor in England, measures 9” high and is heavy enough to serve as a large desk paperweight, bookend or personal library focal point. Please note that each bust is crafted by hand by our sculptor at the time of order. Delivery may take up to three weeks.
