In Western cultures a death mask is a wax or plaster cast made of a person's face following death. Death masks may be mementos of the dead, or used for creation of portraits. It is sometimes possible to identify portraits that have been painted from death masks, because of the characteristic slight distortion of the features caused by the weight of the plaster during the making of the mold.
