A portrait for Mary Shelley's birthday

Today is the birthday of Mary Shelley. I try to celebrate it every year, as she wrote the classic horror (and proto scifi) novel Frankenstein. Her birthday is one of the stepping stones in my countdown to Halloween. So this year, I am sharing this picture of a bust of her. I found it on the Facebook page of the Shelley Trust, a total random. I find it absolutely beautiful. A sculpture is kind of fitting, as in the novel the Creature was a sculpture of sorts, one made of flesh (but not human limbs, that is an inaccuracy brought by the movies).

That is indeed a lovely bust of her.
