Original “Whisperer” mask used in the production of the ninth and tenth season’s of the hit AMC series The Walking Dead. Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, this gritty drama portrays life in the months and years that follow a zombie apocalypse. A group of survivors travel in search of safety and security, constantly on the move in search of a secure home. But the pressure each day to stay alive sends many in the group to the deepest depths of human cruelty, and they soon discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be more deadly than the zombies walking among them. At times, the interpersonal conflicts present a greater threat to their continuing survival than the walkers that roam the country.
The Whisperers were a group of survivors featured in the ninth and tenth seasons of the show who acted as the main antagonist to the group. Through a process of skinning killed walkers and possibly other dead bodies and curing the ‘leather’ in order to prevent contamination, Whisperers craft and don full-head masks that allow them to blend into herds and guide them like sheep for strategic or defensive benefits. This piece was created by KNB Effect Group under the supervision of Greg Nicotero. This mask is made of foam latex and features a full head construction with an opened back that is held together with black string. The mask itself features beautifully cast in details, large eye and mouth sections, and hand punched hair. The mask has been expertly painted to resemble rotting and necrotic flesh that has been sewn together. This piece shows slight wear from use in the series but remains in excellent, screen used condition.
