Although somewhat morbid, the Laurence Hutton Collection of Life and Death Masks at Princeton University is pretty cool. Within this collection are castings of Oliver Cromwell, Dante, Goethe, Beethoven, James Dean, Tolstoy (pictured) and many other historical figures. Tons more death masks are available here. And here's a site on sculptural forensics. I feel so goth.
