    Description

    Ray Harryhausen screen-used miniature Pharaoh statue with arms crossed from Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. (Columbia, 1977) Vintage 16.5 x 6 in. Egyptian-style Pharaoh statue seen on screen in an alcove in the "Shrine of the Elements" miniature set of Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. Consisting of plaster cast figure with front painted to appear as stone and unpainted raw plaster back. Harryhausen presented this figure to his Clash of the Titans (MGM, 1981) assistant animator Steve Archer as a lasting memento of their work together. Many of Harryhausen's elaborate miniature settings were abandoned at various studios he worked in, destined to be destroyed like so many unwanted sets. Eventually, Archer gifted this item to Mike Hankin, author of Ray Harryhausen: Master of the Majicks trilogy of books. This figure comes directly from the collection of Hankin. Items so closely associated with Harryhausen seldom if ever appear on the market. The figure remains in vintage, production-used fine condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
