Miss Spider puppet head

In Stock


An original puppet head used in the production of James and the Giant Peach, the 1996 fantasy picture produced by Tim Burton and directed by Henry Selick who had previously collaborated on The Nightmare Before Christmas.

This is an original puppet head for Miss Spider, voiced by Susan Sarandon, which was used to bring the character to life using stop motion animation. Custom fabricated by the production from high quality resin the head features a hand painted detachable face appliance, eyes and eyelids with a metal hole to the bottom used to locate it on the puppet body. The interior of the head features numerous hand inscribed production markings including the date 5/11/95 with the back of the face appliance hand inscribed with the number 29C.

The puppet head measures approximately 3" across and remains in excellent production used condition, extremely fine.

An instantly recognisable and highly displayable artefact from this well received stop motion picture.
