2. Death Mask Comparison
I thought that it would be interesting to do a side by side comparison of my Joseph Smith photo with his death mask.
The only difference that stands out in this image is his nose, which I believe they stuffed with cotton prior to casting the mold.
A personal thank you to Gracia Jones for allowing me to examine and photograph her mask. To those who don't know, Gracia Jones is a well known author, historian, and direct decedent of Joseph and Emma Smith.
