John Carter

Lot # 439 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Hero Thark Rifle

Stock #107481

A hero Thark rifle from Andrew Stanton's sci-fi adventure film John Carter. Tharks were a race of nine-foot tall aliens native to Barsoom, armed with an array of salvaged weapons. When John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) first encountered the Tharks he picked up one of their rifles, but did not know how to use it.

The rifle features solid wood stock components, a steel receiver and a long brass barrel. It has a metal trigger and striker and a wooden stock wrapped in leather. The wooden forearm has patterns carved into it, with a leather grip over the top. Metal wire is wrapped around the grip, a leather strap is wrapped around the body and woollen string is tied around the metal leading to the stock. The piece has been intentionally distressed to look well used and personalised. The metal is tarnished, and there are many scuffs and scratches. It has been sympathetically deactivated and no longer fires. Dimensions: 250 cm x 10 cm x 21 cm (98 1/2" x 4" x 8 1/4")

£3,000 - 5,000
