A bloke from Liverpool makes the life mask out of wax

John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

I wonder if a copy is for sale?? At first I didn't like that black stuff on it, but the more I listened to his explanation of it being a combination of a "life and death" mask, the more I became intrigued. Like I've said before, I'm a HUGE sucker (with some discretion) for anything Keastian.

And the marks on the throat were eerie. You could add a reply to his video and ask him.

I thought the mingling of life and death to be *very* Keatsian! What a great and unexpected--yet apt--result!

Yes and the man lives not far from me...that's if he hasn't moved out of the county! I wonder if he is a big fan of our dear poet?
