If you hear the words "death mask," one of the first things you think of is probably the tombs of Ancient Egypt. The idea of creating a mask of a person face after they're dead has been going strong ever since then, though, and the folks at elistmania have dug up (hehe... get it?) 20 death masks of famous people. We particularly like the one of Nikola Tesla, just because it's incredibly creepy. If you want to see it in person, it's on display at the Tesla Museum in Belgrade.
