Physical description

Face mask representing the head of a robot, made from gold-coloured polypropylene, with transparent blue polystyrene eyes. The face is long and narrow, with sharply-defined features and a prominent cranium, with a large ridge at the forehead. There are grilles over both mouth and nose. The grey polyethylene strap is connected to the mask by two large polyethylene discs, each with moulded concentric rings and a star at the centre. The eyes are formed from a single piece and are affixed to the inside of the mask by three metal rivets.
