This is one of the remaining replacement animation busts. There was no budget or schedule for plastic castings so the pieces are the original, painted clay sculptures - Roma #2 melted and mixed in proportion with some Kleen Klay. Bill Forsche and Scott Wheeler did the molds and castings. There's nothing to be done about the deterioration of Roma clay.Over time it shrinks, hardens and cracks. But, these are the production originals and every time you see this movie you see these pieces. The heads are all numbered for the sequence and this is head number 8. Third image shows what it looked like on the stage.
Should not be a problem.
