Oliver Cromwell's Death Mask - AN1990.91 - When Oliver Cromwell died, a wax mould was made of his features and was most probably kept by its maker, Thomas Simon. Seven weeks after his death a wooden effigy and wax replica of his face (made from the cast) were laid in state at Somerset House. Plaster-casts were made from the original wax mould. Ours was cast in the 1800s. - http://britisharchaeology.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/highlights/cromwell-mask.html
