Edgar Allan Poe Bust

I came across a plaster bust of Chopin in a charity shop a few months back. I've nothing against Chopin particularly, but I thought that it might be an interesting project to remodel the sculpture into a great artist who holds some personal significance to me. Poe seemed an obvious choice (though, physically he bears no resemblance to Chopin at all!) so I modified Chopin's features into those of the creator of ‘The Raven’ and ‘Murders in the Rue Morgue’
Interestingly, While researching costume details I discovered that Poe and Chopin were almost exact contempories; Chopin 1810-1849, Poe 1809-1849.
Spooky huh?
