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...
