An Arborian Tree Man crossbow and dagger from Mike Hodges' sci-fi adventure Flash Gordon. The Tree Men of Arboria wore daggers as part of their costumes, and wielded their crossbows as Flash (Sam J. Jones) escaped the temple after tricking Prince Barin (Timothy Dalton) during the Wood Beast ritual.
The crossbow comprises a fibreglass body finished in green with gold-coloured detailing, black wooden bow arms and a foldable arm brace featuring a leather cuff. The resin dagger consists of a slightly curved blade, an intricately detailed green handle and a green leather sheath. Both pieces exhibit minor signs of damage and paint wear. Dimensions (crossbow): 54 cm x 30 cm x 16 cm (21 1/4" x 11 3/4" x 6 1/4"); (dagger unsheathed): 34 cm x 6 cm x 2 cm (13 1/4" x 2 1/4" x 3/4")
