- reconstructions
Faces from the past
are brought back
to life, using the
reconstruction technique developed by
forensic experts and
artists. The reconstruction work is being made from cast copies of
archeological and historical finds.
The artist also carries out facial reconstructions of
un-identified victims for the Swedish police.
Facial reconstruction requires the expertise of a
physical or forensic anthropologist to determine sex,
age and ancestry on the skull, and extensive knowledge of the anatomy of the face and good artistic

- characters
O.D. Nilsson can offer
character-figures in many
different scales. The most
wanted scales are lifesize, 1:3 and 1:4.
The fullscale figures are
cast in silicone to achieve
a realistic imitation of
human skin. This technique is the very same as
the one used by the
special effect artists in
Hollywood. For ultimate
realism, glass eyes are used together with human
hair inserted strand by strand.
Even though smaller in scale than lifesize, 1:3 and
1:4 scale figures still carry the same detailing and
sculptural quality. To achieve the highest historical
accuracy, clothes are sewn from real patterns.

of the person, it´s necessary not only to get the
physical features right;
character and
bodylanguage have to be
accurate as well.
A portrait must express the personality!
