Would you have a bust of yourself in your own home? There’s one of Frank Lloyd Wright in the living room of his Taliesin West winter home in Scottsdale, Arizona.
That seems a bit odd to me. I suppose it depends on the perspective of the current owner. Apparently they are decorating the house for their tastes and satisfaction and deciding not to honor the historical value of the home. That’s fine with me. The current owner OWNS the home so they have control over that.
However, it’s neat to go into historical homes and see things as the they were when the famous person lived there. I don’t think you’d see any busts of Abraham Lincoln in his Springfield home now would you?
