Scan by Christer Lindqvist. Retopology by Niclas Ekholm.
Death mask in plaster, depicting the well-known artist Sigge Wülff, who died of tuberculosis in 1892, only 22 years old. At the time of his death he was one of Sweden’s most popular entertainers and thousands of people lined the streets when his chest was taken to the northern cemetery. A week after his death, Sigge Wülff appeared as a wax doll on Svenska Panoptikon, a wax cabinet on Kungsträdgårdsgatan. They also acquired this death mask which later was sold at auction when Panoptikon went bankrupt in 1924. The buyer then donated the mask to the Stockholm City Museum in 1976. The mask has the inventory number SSM 43104 in the City Museum Collection.
