    The Ten Commandments Precise Replica Prop Tablets (Paramount, 1956). Cecil B. DeMille's greatest film, and his last, has joined the pantheon of epic movies revered from generation to generation. These are painstakingly recreated 23" x 12" x 1" replica tablets "written by the finger of God." Constructed of cast resin compound, the "engraving" is in an early Canaanite script practiced in the late Bronze Age (c. 13th century B.C.), Moses' era. These exact replica tablets were faithfully created by FX artist Michael Moore by commission for a private exhibition. Featuring sculpted chips, craters and dings, since they were to have been carved with God's "fire bolts," and painted in great detail to appear as carved stone. The iconic tablets are the most important props identified with the DeMille biblical epic and beloved star Charlton Heston. In Fine condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
