He'd be perfect to put in your window for Halloween.

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.

Sincerely,

Bill

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!
