    "Lament Configuration" hero articulating puzzle box from Hellraiser: Hellseeker, Deader, and Hellworld. (Dimension, 2002-2005) Original "Lemarchand's" "Lament configuration" hero puzzle box. Constructed of approx. 3 in. square, segmented carved wood puzzle box, decorated overall with fine filigreed, laser-etched brass panels featuring mythical occult symbology, the top is painted black beneath the filigree. Attached to a 9.5 in. brass pipe with pull lever to puppeteer the animating effect. Pulling the lever up, animates the vertical articulation of a sunburst pattern, and once the box halves clear, allow for a rotation and descent back into the core, which creates the iconic final stage of the puzzle box movement, dropping the veil between worlds, allowing the "Cenobites" to visit. The box remains completely operational. Exhibiting light production wear, with some scratching to filigree. In production used very good to fine condition. Comes with signed LOA by makeup FX creator/Makeup FX designer prop maker, director, and writer Gary J. Tunnicliffe who created puzzle boxes for the franchise.
