Feast your eyes! Glut your soul on my accursed ugliness!

"If I am the Phantom, it is because man's hatred has made me so... If I shall be saved, it will be because your love redeems me."

Erik the Phantom of the Opera from the famous silent movie version.
Lon Chaney and his performance is still unmatched, his scenes are chilling and far from the way of acting  which is connected to the silent era. 

This 1:1 scale bust is produced by Amok Time Toys from a sculpt by Casey Love. I tried to recreate an kind of "Basil Gogos" colored paint scheme. Not sure if it was successful...


  1. Rainer, you are so talented. Your Erik the Phantom is the best rendering of this classic character I've ever seen. I have linked you to my blog, Pappy's Golden Age, and hope my readers will follow the link to your beautiful site.

  2. Thanks Pappy, I also enjoy your blog for some time now!
