Extruded JFK

I don't get this. Can you really extrude a profile image and have it three dimensional like this or did the artist have to sculpt the additional facial features? Seems like a lot of work for a bracelet, but that's what makes it interesting.

This required a male and female die. The coin was heated and struck from behind into a sculpted block of metal. The origianl stamped images of JFK's head played no part in the creation of this 3D effigy.

Ah, that's what I was thinking. There's no way that they could do it.

Thanks Steve!
