A pair of hand-drawn Ron Cobb ornithopter concept sketches from Alejandro Jodorowsky's unproduced adaptation of Dune. In the Frank Herbert novels, ornithopters transported people across the deserts of Arrakis.

These concept sketches of the ornithopter were created during development on Jodorowsky's unproduced adaptation by conceptual artist Ron Cobb. One features several illustrations of ornithopter machinery rendered in pencil and watercolour on graph paper, while the second features a detailed scale illustration of the vehicle and a pilot rendered in pencil on illustration paper. Both sketches exhibit minor wear along their edges and various stains to the paper. Dimensions (largest): 49 cm x 34.25 cm (19¼" x 13½"); (smallest): 42 cm x 30 cm (16½" x 11¾")
