Rick: Wow, was it carved from wood.
It has such detail. Happy Easter.

I don't know if it's plaster or what. Perhaps Dale can jump in and explain it.

Kinda creepy looking.

Rick, I have looked at that face for many years now but never has it looked so horrible as in black & white extreme close-up! That scared even me!!!! :-)

It's a foam latex mask, so it's actually soft to the touch. It was originally sculpted in clay, then cast in plaster then the final mask was run in foam latex. It was created waaaay back in '92, I think, for The Charleston Light Opera Guild's performance of "Into the Woods".

Wonderful work - to Dale for the art and to you Rick for capturing the essence.
