A pair of Vermithrax Pejorative armature head casts from Matthew Robbins' and Hal Barwood's fantasy film Dragonslayer. After his master (Ralph Richardson) was killed, the young apprentice, Galen (Peter MacNicol), was sent to slay Vermithrax Pejorative. This lot comes from the film's Dragon Supervisor, Phil Tippett, who was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on the film, including the construction of several dragon puppet armatures.
These Vermithrax Pejorative armature heads are cast in metal, with one marked "P.B. P.T. '83" with clay applied to the snout. The pair is in good overall condition with some crumbling clay and visible rusting. Includes a letter of authenticity from Phil Tippett.
