This life-like statue was displayed at the eminent poet, publisher and bookseller Bernard Stone's London premises at Turret bookshops in Kensington Church Street. Michael Horowitz described it as "the merriest backwater of that time". Every Saturday afternoon from the early 1960s , Stone would give out free glasses of wine to a bohemian literary crowd under the watchful of eye of Sigmund Freud. This included not only Horowitz, but also Alan Brownjohn, Christopher Logue, Lawrence Durrell, Alan Sillitoe and Sir John Waller. Sigmund was also displayed at Stone's later premises in Floral Street, Convent Garden and Lamb's Conduit Street in Bloomsbury.
