I finally saw the 2011 documentary on Ray Harryhausen the other day. Someone (I forget who) said one of the Jason skeletons was brought to Weta and they scanned it. The person said "so the bronze that you get IS the original..."

THE BRONZE THAT YOU GET?!

Was there an offering from Weta (or someone) ten years ago I'd never heard of?!

Found this on the Heritage Auction site...Incredibly rare pieces here, only 82 exist! They say this was scanned from the original, I assume that's what they were referencing.

Thanks!
What did it sell for on Heritage?
The pose isn't great, I must say.
No pricing info on the Heritage one, however, there was another in the Profiles in History catalog from 2019 that had a price range of $2,000-$3,000...don't know what it sold for ultimately.
