Dune (Unproduced, Jodorowsky)

Lot # 249 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Hand-Painted Ron Cobb Ornithopter Concept Sketch

Stock #104266

A hand-painted Ron Cobb ornithopter concept sketch created for Alejandro Jodorowsky's never-completed adaptation of Frank Herbert's sci-fi epic Dune. In this unproduced film, which collapsed during development during the mid-'70s,, ornithopters would have been used to transport people across the deserts of Arrakis and warn workers of impending attacks by giant sandworms.

This hand-drawn depiction of an ornithopter is the work of conceptual artist Ron Cobb. It was initially sketched as a pencil outline on a sheet of white paper before it was then fully realised in colour paint over the sketch. There is minor wear along the paper edges, with some stains and writing on the back of the paper in pencil. Dimensions: 43.25 cm x 35.5 cm x 0.75 cm (17" x 14" x 1/4")
