Indiana Jones & The Raiders Of The Lost Ark

Lot # 364 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Robert Watts Collection: Staff of Ra Headpiece Production Gift

Stock #106325

A Staff of Ra headpiece from Steven Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark. This piece comes from the personal collection of legendary producer Robert Watts. Thought to be a simple medallion by its owner, Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen), it became a major plot device when she and Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) attempted to thwart the Nazis' attempts to locate the legendary Ark of the Covenant. Indy used it in the Map Room at Tanis to reveal the location of the Well of Souls, the resting place of the Ark.

This headpiece was cast from the original moulds during production to create a special gift for Watts. The headpiece is made of cast metal, finished in faux-gold paint, and features plastic crystal 'eyes'. It is mounted on a custom-made wooden display. This piece shows few signs of wear, with just some light tarnishing to the metal. Dimensions (displayed): 6.5 cm x 6.5 cm x 18 cm (2 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 7 1/4")

£4,000 - 6,000 M

This lot comes from the personal collection of celebrated film producer Robert Watts. Watts’ career began in the 1960s with location manager, production manager and assistant director credits on movies including Thunderball, Repulsion, Darling, Papillon, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars: A New Hope and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Robert went on to become producer of such classics as Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
