DescriptionA Prop Possibly from "Cleopatra." 20th Century Fox, 1963. Made of fiberglass and other materials (hollow on the inside), in the form of a female body with a lion's head seated on a block with hieroglyphics carved into either side, the creature has a hole in one outstretched hand where she would have held something, painted in various shades of gold, yellow, and brown (evidently re-painted from its original paint job); appearing to be or is similar to a piece of set dressing used in the 'Ides of March' scene where Elizabeth Taylor [as "Cleopatra"] sees the assassination of Julius Caesar in the smoke. It is also possibly a piece of decor from the Sands Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ where their 'Epic Buffet' was decorated with props from Rome's famous Cinecittà Studios.
Approximately: 68" x 20" x 28"
