What's that made of? Wood? Some kind of plaster? Or, wait, maybe melamine? The cracks do remind me of some old dinner plates I used to have.
Foam rubber with a heavy layer of paint. The rubber is slowly rotting thus causing the long dried paint to crack with a "dried lake bed" pattern. One can see the same "aging" upon Harryhausen's animation figures.


Tempt the Hand of Fate and it'll give you the "finger"!

Oh, of course, foam rubber. I can see it now. I'm so bad at this...

I don't know what it is about certain types of rubber. A friend of mine dug up a fifteen or twenty year old rubber head mask he has, what with Halloween coming up, and the thing is just crumbling away!
