A Sardo Numspa (Charles Dance) demon maquette from Michael Ritchie's comedy fantasy The Golden Child. The evil sorcerer Sardo unveiled his true demon form to prevent Chandler Jarrell (Eddie Murphy) from rescuing the Golden Child (J.L. Reate). This lot comes from the film's Demon Supervisor, Phil Tippett, who designed the puppets used in the climactic sequence.
The maquette is constructed of mixed media, painted in red and white with sharp teeth and two pointed horns. It ismounted in an acrylic case for display and protection from the elements. The piece exhibits some cracks from age but remains in excellent overall condition. Includes a letter of authenticity from Phil Tippett.
