The Laurence Hutton Collection Of Life And Death Masks at the Princeton University, US, has an amazing collection of life and death masks of some famous people in history. They are quite fascinating and eery at the same time with the amount of detail and the presence they have. You can even see how some of them died, such as King Charles VII of Sweden.

I heard about these when listening to the amazing Stuff You Should Know podcast on death masks, which can be found here.
