Our expert's notesA victim's chest wound appliance from FX's American Horror Story: Hotel. The fifth season of the series, entitled "Hotel," centers on a Los Angeles detective investigating a series of mysterious murders that somehow link to the eerie Hotel Cortez.
In the first episode of the season, entitled "Checking In," Detective John Lowe (Wes Bentley) investigates the brutal murder of a speared woman and the disfigurement of her lover, whose chest is left marred and wounded by the Ten Commandments Killer. Made for production, the delicately sculpted and crafted chest wound appliance is made of silicone and has been painted in a light fleshy tone throughout.
The piece was unused during production, and shows some signs of wear from age, but it remains in great overall condition.
