Conan The Barbarian (1982)

Lot # 100 - Live Auction 2017 - Ron Cobb Hand-Drawn Father's Sword Production Drawing

Stock #73541

A hand-drawn concept design of the Father's Sword from John Milius' fantasy epic Conan the Barbarian (1982). The sword was crafted by Conan's father (William Smith) before being taken by Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones) after his raid on the Cimmerian village.

Illustrated by production designer Ron Cobb on white paper, this full-scale rendering of the Master's Sword is accomplished in pencils and inks, with brown inks applied to give colour to the ornate grip. Every detail has been illustrated, from the horned pommel to the skull guard and the intricate engraving along the blade, featuring the text 'Suffer No Guilt Yee Who Wield This In The Name of Crom' in a stylised font. The artwork is signed by Cobb and dated 1979 along the sword's blade. It displays pinholes at the edges from use, with some minor creasing as a result of use and age. Dimensions: 31 cm x 111 cm (12" x 43 3/4")
