From Dante to Hitchcock, various celebrity desmasks
Death mask was taken of the shape of the face of the deceased, and it seems that it was made as a material for decorating the desmask at the funeral ceremony from the 17th century and drawing a portrait. Currently in archeology it is also discovering masks from the discovered skulls to confirm the characteristics, and it seems that there are occasions to make a mask (life mask) of the living being for scientific use.
That's why I attempted to collect celebrity desmasks.
Details are as below.
