Stop Motion Potato Statue Miniature Display

Stock #20822

A Stop Motion Potato Statue Miniature Display from Tim Burton’s 1988 black comedy Beetlejuice. Near the end of the film Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton) wreaks havoc on a dinner party by making two abstract statues come to life and attack the guests. This particular abstract features a rectangular prism connected by an arm to a potato-shaped boulder. The piece is made mostly of foam latex and painted varying shades of green. There are small metal branches sticking out of the potato. The arm connecting the two pieces is made of metal with hinges so that the statue could be made, in stop motion, to crawl across the floor.

This item comes beautifully presented on a custom made wooden display stand with the films title on the front. The title, which is backlit, can be illuminated by depressing a button on the back of the display. Please note that this item has sustained wear to the material, which has hardened over the years, however this piece was faithfully restored to preserve its integrity. During the restoration, cracks were patched and repainted while small areas that were missing foam latex were repaired. These careful restorations were made to be as sympathetic to the original piece, allowing the finish to remain largely original. This miniature remains in very good restored condition.
