A masker of life and death

What can we do to bring back life and death masks? Take a little trip through history and check out some famous figures from the ages as they actually appeared. Lincoln. Napoleon. How about real George Washington? All in there. I rather prefer the life masks, if only because they better represent what the person looked like.

Did you know that CPR Annie (as in, “Annie, Annie, are you OK?”) was based on the death mask of an unidentified woman who drowned in the Seine River some time in the late 1880s? I did not.

Go below the jump to see what George Washington actually looked like.
