Today I'm here to show you the prop that was in my mind the day after I saw "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull". When I saw the movie for the first time, I thought: "I want to make it!" As you know, there were other skull replicas made during the past years. I always dreamed to have a crystal skull but in my mind I always imaginated it made in my way. Last year I talked with a good friend Michele of mine and I said him my wish to sculpt my own crystal skull. He supported me. I said him that I had not so much time to sculpt because I work 8 hours per day so I would't have had the time to sculpt a so big and difficult prop. His reply was really simple and smart: "work hard 30 minutes per day and in a year or so I am sure that you'll do your crystal skull" So, I did it! (Naturally I spent more than 30 minutes per day and my wife was not so happy so, at least, I hope you like my creation )
What you see in the images is my personal sculpting that took me 2 months of movie frames analysis plus a carefully examination of images of the official prop plus the replicas ones. Then I started my sculpting day by day and after about a year this is the result.
Now I'm here to understand the interest about this prop.
It will be made by a professional firm that will make a special transparent casting resin and the skull will be hollow with special reflecting plastic layers. As you can see, the skull will have a special stand that will hang it over a Maya calendar stone (the idea of the Maya calendar stone was given to me from the scene where all crystall skulls were collected; as you can see from the images I attached, the actors walking on a big maya calendar's floor). Also, I thought to white led lights that will illuminate the skull and the stone Maya base. The leds will be activated with a pressure of the central face of the stone. The skull will be removable from the stand. Just to be honest, this won't be a cheap prop. As you can understand, this is a big "thing" and it will require a lot of work to be made and the firm that will realize it asks a lot of money. This is a thread just to understand if this projet will go on.
The selling price will be $1200,00 plus shipping.
So, I just am here for your consideration.
