Alien egg miniature



An original miniature used in the production of Aliens, the second instalment in the popular Alien film franchise directed by James Cameron.

This miniature alien egg was used during the production of the visual effects sequences produced by a talented effects team which included Robert & Dennis Skotak, Stan Winston and John Richardson. The destruction of the egg chamber was realised by a combination of live action and complex miniature effects which employed every trick in the book to produce a sequence where the two methods are virtually indistinguishable on screen. The egg is constructed from foam with a thick latex covering which has been dressed, hand painted and weathered, to the base of the egg is the remnants of hot glue which was used to attach the prop to the miniature set.

The miniature stands approximately X" high and remains in excellent production used condition, soft and supple to the touch with some paint wear most noticeably to the bottom and lacking part of the foam base likely where it was removed from the miniature set. This represents an incredibly rare authentic example of these heavily replicated miniatures from this special effects triumph which won the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.

An instantly recognisable and highly displayable miniature effects artefact from this classic movie franchise.
