Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

John Hays Hammond, Jr. (1888-1965) had a life-size nude sculpture commissioned of his likeness to give to his wife, Irene Fenton, as a birthday gift and was placed out front so all who passed could view it. She unfortunately hated it. At the insistence of Irene, a fig leaf was added to the front of it and the statue was placed outside on the back lawn overlooking the ocean. During parties guests would remove the detachable fig leaf, much to Mrs. Hammond's annoyance. She later had the fig leaf permanently welded on. The statue can now be found in Hammond Castle's Courtyard.
