Accomplished in paints on paper the design is a concept for the EUROSEC spacesuits which would later be reused, along with various other props, in Anderson's subsequent television series UFO. The piece is signed and dated to the bottom right corner 'DEREK MEDDINGS 68'.
The artwork measures 11" x 6" and has been mounted on artists board, it remains in excellent condition, very fine.
