A Blind Bargain - starring Lon Chaney

From the lost silent movie "A Blind Bargain" comes this bust, sculpted by Saul Alvarez. It depicts Lon Chaney as the "Apeman". The only thing I added were the teeth - in most of the surviving stills from that movie they show in a prominent way. The bust was well cast, with minimum clean up. It was painted with Vallejo acrylics, MIG enamel washes and some pastels. I'm really happy that someone took care of this obscure and overlooked character! Highly recommended!
