Then engineers at Konica Minolta Europe scanned the bust and the death mask with lasers to construct three-dimensional computer models. "Superimposing the models revealed perfect matches between the forehead, eyes and nose," New Scientist reports. But the lips on the death mask, owned by the city of Darmstadt, Germany, were thinner than those on the bust. The professor said the lips would have shrunk because of loss of blood pressure after death. New Scientist says British experts remain unconvinced, and art historians suspect that the Garrick Club bust was made more than 140 years after Shakespeare died in 1616.
