This is a beautiful human death mask. People used to have death masks created to remember loved ones as a more realistic approach than a painting. This piece has been mounted on a custom base. This is a first cast, meaning that a mould of the face was made and the plaster poured in for the first time gives a lot more detail (and sometimes the occasional hair.
This one dates to the 1930s according to the previous owner and is in the same style and condition as others I have that are dated.
price includes worldwide shipping.
photos form part of the description so look closely.
All the remains I sell are over 100 years old for the law, ethically sourced and respect of the living friends and relatives, I would never sell any remains with a known name as this may upset the living and that is in my opinion disrespectful. If someone is disrespected with no link to a random skull then that is their opinion and in my mind not disrespectful.
