An original mask used in the production of The Time Travelers, the 1964 science fiction picture directed by Ib Melchior.
Android masks such as this can be seen worn throughout the picture, custom made by the production the uniquely designed mask is constructed from hard rubber finished with a skin coloured paint. The eyes have been filled to appear black and the mouth section replaced, the black ear pieces however are original, to the interior is a foam filled section to support and display the piece with the rubber backed using fibreglass matting. Following filming this mask was retained by director Ib Melchior in his personal collection and later gifted to Academy Award winning visual effects designer Robert Skotak from whom it was obtained.
The mask stands an impressive 14" high and remains in very good vintage condition with the rubber hardened and very stable, some cracking and surface wear is also present most notably to the right cheek.
An extraordinarily rare and displayable artefact from this cult science fiction production.
