SkekTek (Steve Whitmire) back armour
A piece of original Skeksis armour created for the production of The Dark Crystal, the 1982 fantasy classic directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz.
This is an original back armour created for use on Skeksis scientist skekTek who was designed by conceptual artist Brian Froud and performed by Muppet alumnus Steve Whitmire. This highly detailed armour is a production made casting of the large back section seen on skekTek throughout the picture and is constructed from fine lightweight fibreglass primed with grey paint, the piece is otherwise unfinished having been surplus to requirements during the production.
The impressive armour measures approximately 42" x 24" at its widest point and stands 12" high, it remains in very good production made condition exhibiting some minor edge wear to the fibreglass and one small crack, otherwise fine.
A rare and displayable principal character artefact from this cult fantasy classic.
