|The Death Mask and Gloves of Martin Luther|
I found an article written by orbit-mag and it only added to my intrigue. According to the article, there is a historical museum in Michigan, who has the death masks of Jesse James and Butch Cassidy. The article goes on to explain some of the funeral purposes of death masks and those would wear them: "In patrician Rome, for example, a wax mask was worn by someone who closely resembled the deceased, while others wore masks of his forbears. According to Pliny, these masks were kept in a special cupboard, an ancestral congregation awaiting the next funeral"
I wonder if The Mutter Museum has any. Something I may have to find out.
Which famous/infamous person in history's death mask would you want to see?
