BORIS KARLOFF FRANKENSTEIN’S MONSTER HEAD BY STAN WINSTON STUDIOS & LEGACY EFFECTS - In 2011, Rob Cametti conceived of the idea of giving 70 Boris Karloff Frankenstein Monster busts to artists to decorate or reimagine. The busts would then be sold to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. This piece is the result of Legacy Effects and Stan Winston studios combined efforts. The 15 in. x 11 in. hyper-realistic bust exhibits the finest craft and artistry Hollywood has to offer. The iconic Monster is composed of solid silicone with layers of hand painting and airbrush work to give the overall figure a mottled translucency and ghastly green skin. Hair has been painstakingly punched into a lace piece, applied to the crown and styled to creepy perfection. Prosthetic grade, bloodshot glass eyes are positioned in heavy-lidded sockets, individual eyelashes applied and actual tooled aluminum head-staple and famous neck bolts inserted. The display is finished with a black wool costume segment that wraps the neck and shoulders and the entire display piece is fastened to a sold tooled aluminum 13 in. x 7 ½ in. x 2 in. oval base. All proceeds from this one-of-a-kind sculpture will go directly to St. Jude’s Children’s hospital.
