The head — perhaps the fragment of a bust — was created by casting the initial clay model using a two-part negative plaster mould (lost mould). Subsequently, Giacometti completely reworked the entire surface by removing plaster.
No subsequent moulds were made from this plaster, meaning that it did not serve as a template for a bronze cast.
