A Spider (Susan Sarandon) stop motion face from Henry Selick's 1996 family adventure James and the Giant Peach.
The story follows orphaned James (Paul Terry) who is forced to live with his two cruel aunts and soon discovers a giant peach in their garden. Venturing inside the enormous fruit, he soon befriends several bugs and embarks on journey to New York.
This face belongs to Miss Spider, James’ mother like figure after she is saved by him at the beginning of the film. This face would have been one of many created for the production and was used to portray the various emotions the character showed throughout the film.
Made from resin, the piece has been hand painted in shades of light grey and purple, and features two eye holes. The face displays a sad expression and black has been used to detail the eyebrows, exterior of the eyes and lips. Reference numbers and notes have been written on the interior of the face to keep track of the different faces during the production. A magnet is fitted to the inside of the piece, so it could be attached to the head and allowed animators to quickly replace them to capture the desired expression.
The face was lightly used in filming and displays minor wear from production use. But the piece remains in overall very good production-used condition.
Materials: Resin, Ferrous Metals.
