A cloning tank, complete with baby, from Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 1995 fantasy film The City of Lost Children.
Old and decrepit Krank (Daniel Emilfork) has lost his capacity for dreaming and is attempting to fight death by stealing the dreams of children. Krank's cadre of cloned henchmen (Dominique Pinon) snatch 5-year-old Denree (Joseph Lucien) to subject him to the horrific dream-retrieval process. The boy's father, One (Ron Perlman), the hulking strongman of a traveling circus, and his precocious 9-year-old friend, Miette (Judith Vittet), join forces to defeat Krank's minions and save Denree.
A flashback shows the process by which Krank cloned his henchmen, and we see them as babies, suspended in cloning tanks.
This item is made of moulded painted resin, wood and metal. It has a steampunk aesthetic, in keeping with the production design of the film. The baby itself is made of foam and can be held in place by metal wires around its neck. The glass sides have a build-up of grime, there are deliberate signs of ageing from production design, and marks of genuine handling and wear. But considering its age, overall this piece remains in a good, production-used condition.
Materials: Ferrous Metals, Glass, Foam, Wood, Plastic, Resin.
