Shakespeare’s bust

Shakespeare

This is the bust of William Shakespeare which is to be found above his grave in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford on Avon. The bust was carved out of Cotswold Stone and placed there in 1623 (a mere 7 years after Shakespeare’s death).  As the bust was commissioned by Anne Hathoway during her lifetime, it is believed that this bust is a good likeness of the bard.
