As part of this year’s Bloomsday celebration, the Hunt Museum in Limerick displayed Joyce’s death mask. The mask, one of two originals, was made two days after Joyce’s death in 1941 out of Dublin silver by Swiss sculptor Paul Speck. The Hunt Museum has had the mask on loan from a private collection for the past 12 years, but has kept it in storage until this year’s Bloomsday. If you’re interested in viewing the mask, it is necessary to do so soon because it will be put back in storage at the end of June. Hat tip to the Irish Times.
