I like the big giant Ming heads. The irony is that for twenty years everybody was watching Flash Gordon in 4:3 and they were completely cropped out of the picture. Then one day you get the widescreen edition and there they are.

I Searching For Detailed informations on Designs sources and blueprints of Emperor Palpatine chair from Return of the Jedi (1983).
There is information available about who designed the chair Palpatine uses in Episode III. I'm looking for similar information regarding his throne in Episode VI.
Emperor Palpatine’s chair sculpted in polystyrene by Keith Short
I find it interesting that at some point somebody changed the leather pattern on the chair so the back matched the seat, instead of having contrasting strips like in Joe Johnston’s sketch and the initial sculpture.
They also carried the padding up to the very top of the chair, whereas in the sculpture there was a dark void that framed the crown of the Emperor’s head, rather like an anti-halo. Was that meant to have a glowing panel installed at one point like in the Johnston sketch? I can see how that might make lighting his face difficult on set.
