Death Mask Gallery

Alfred Hitchcock.jpg

I believe the word is macabre.

A death mask is a wax or plaster cast of a mold taken from the face of a deceased person. Death masks are true portraits, although changes are occasionally made in the eyes of the mask to make it appear as though the subject were alive. For the last few centuries they have been kept
as mementos of the dead, much like postmortem photography.

Pictured above is the death mask of Alfred Hitchcock.
