A cast of Jimi Hendrix's package, made by the late Cynthia "Plaster Caster" Albritton, is set to be unveiled at the Icelandic Phallological Museum.
The artefact was donated by the late Cynthia Albritton, aka Cynthia"Plaster Caster". It will be displayed during a closed event at the museum which will take place in early June.
Albritton, who was a former groupie, gained fame for her plaster work of rockstars' penises and breasts. Some of her models include Jello Biafra, formerly of Dead Kennedys, Buzzcocks’ Pete Shelley, Television’s Richard Lloyd and MC5’s Wayne Kramer. She also casted the breasts of Stereolab's Laetitia, Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and many others.
Jimi Hendrix was Albritton’s very first celebrity client; his cast was also considered to be her finest work. She was immortalized in the KISS song "Plaster Caster".
The Icelandic Phallological Museum contains a collection of more than two hundred and fifteen penises and penile parts belonging to almost all the land and sea mammals that can be found in Iceland.
