It was created by the Viennese sculptor Franz Klein (1779 - 1840), the original was made in 1812 and required Beethoven's face to be covered with oil and then fluid plaster. During the process, Beethoven could only breathe through two straws inserted into his nostrils.


Wall hanging Jesmonite cast which is lightweight and incredibly strong. 

This makes a perfect learning cast as it will withstand handling and measuring from over and over again.

Far superior in strength to other plaster versions on the market.

Casts are pigmented pure white and can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth without damaging the cast.
