LUGOSI LIFE MASK
FROM THE FACE OF THE LEGENDARY KING OF THE VAMPIRES IN 1943
(1882-1956) Bela Lugosi came from Hungary in 1921. In 1927 he stared in
on the Broadway stage. He took his role to Hollywood in 1931. He made a
career playing the role of the Prince of Darkness for the rest of his life.
The cast for this
mask was taken for the final special effects scene for the 1943 Columbia
Pictures presentation Return of the Vampire.
They needed to create a wax face of Lugosi so that after he had a steak
driven through his heart ,the sun light got him and melted his face. It's
a great scene and you can see his eyeball as his face melts away. Bela
Lugosi was 61 when the cast was taken from his face. It has been enhanced
and restored to accurately depict the scene from the film. The ears
and hair have been replaced.
The finnished piece is cast in USG's Tuf-Cal gypsum cement, it is fiber
filled and has polymer additves to assure it will last forever.
This mask is finished in Silver Screen Silver rubbed with an antiquing
overlay to bring out the detail. Then it is sealed to preserve it. This
is a full scale 1 to 1 cast. Each mask comes with hanging instructions
and the screw.
