Greg Norman’s house in Colorado is loaded with all kinds of trophy mounts from his famous hunts around the world. There are bears, elk, mountain lions, you name it, and soon, there will be another famous mount added to the shrine: a bust of Norman himself.

Norman posted a photo to his Instagram account featuring many pieces of a “custom bronze bust” being assembled by sculptor David Phelps. The bust is an impressive depiction of The Shark, though it quickly received some criticism via the comment section.

One of the first comments called Norman a narcissist for having a bust of himself made for himself. He didn’t, actually. The bust is a gift from his wife, Kirsten Norman. She and Phillips both quickly defended Norman, saying he is definitely not narcissistic.

Phillips also posted a 360-degree visual of the head of the bust in “oil clay before mold making.”
