Georgia company creates oversized bust of Lincoln

ALPHARETTA, Ga. (AP) - Alpharetta-based Foam Depot has one of its works on display at a national historic site.

Officials at the David Wills House in Gettysburg, Pa., unveiled an oversized Styrofoam-like bust of Abraham Lincoln on Thursday at a ceremony marking Lincoln's 200th birthday.

The National Parks Service and Main Street Gettysburg spent about four years renovating the house where the nation's 16th president slept on the eve of delivering the Gettysburg Address in 1863. The Wills house is now a museum dedicated to the Battle of Gettysburg and all things Lincoln.

Foam Depot founder Bruce Trott and his artist partner spent about 80 man-hours creating the Lincoln likeness out of two large chunks of expanded polystyrene. The finished product stands 7 feet, 6 inches tall and 10 feet wide and cost $6,000.
