A Typhibian maquette from Ivan Reitman's science fiction comedy Evolution. One of the alien creatures that quickly evolved when an extra-terrestrial meteor crashed in Arizona, a Typhibian was seen dragging Barry Cartwright (Gregory Itzin) into the water at a golf course. This maquette was created for the production by

Phil Tippett's effects company, Tippett Studio, who were credited for the visual effects for the film. It is a three-dimensional representation of the creature that was largely digitally animated; the maquette was a tool for shot planning, lighting reference, and other purposes. Cast in resin and presented on a custom wood base and transparent acrylic case, this maquette is painted in detail with two variations of the paint on either side. It features four legs, black spikes on its tail and a tuft of hair on the top of its back. This maquette is in excellent overall condition with some minor wear throughout. Includes a letter of authenticity from Phil Tippett.
