Additional Notes A life-sized portrait bust sculpture, in plaster painted pink, of Hon. William Forgan Smith was created by Daphne Mayo in 1944. The bust measures 39 x 27 x 26cm. Glasses are used as prop on the bust. The relationship of this bust to the portrait medallion (Cat. No. 107 ) is uncertain. (Information from McKay, J. (1981). Daphne Mayo, sculptor.
