You, too, can have your own Oprah burial mask

A burial mask -- paying tribute to inner beauty and Oprah Winfrey -- is making its Chicago debut this weekend during Artropolis at the Merchandise Mart.

The mask is selling on eBay for a starting bid of $255.

“The Oprah Burial Mask depicts for the viewer a celebration of an inner beauty for which we could all aspire,” says David Kesting -- director of NYC’s Leo Kesting Gallery -- on the life-sized hollowed bust. “If we each imagined an object that represented us at our most ideal for all eternity, we might hold ourselves to the highest standards, both morally and spiritually.”

“Standing before the burial mask of King Tut’s great-grandmother when it was displayed in Philadelphia, I finally understood how the creation of an object could be the act of preparing for a better place. It inspired me to create such an object.”
