Get up close and personal with Beethoven’s death maskmain
The Vienna Funeral Museum – yes, there had to be one – is putting on a display of death masks of great composers. On display are Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert as they were seen for the last time before burial.
Beethoven’s mask, we’re told, is somewhat distorted due to the cranial autopsy that was performed after his deat.
Only in Vienna.
