(FoxNews) – A mysterious bronze death mask of French Emperor Napoleon
(above) offers a macabre glimpse into his death in exile on the remote Atlantic island of St. Helena.     

The mask was cast from a mold taken shortly after Napoleon’s death, according
to New Orleans gallery M.S. Rau Antiques, which is selling the artifact for 
$34,500. Napoleon, who had been exiled to the
British territory of St. Helena following his defeat in the Battle of Waterloo, died on May 5, 1821. The 250th
anniversary of Napoleon’s birth is August 15.
