Our expert's notesA Steven Spielberg ILM raptor model crew gift from his sci-fi action adventure film Jurassic Park. After the film's production, Spielberg gifted a small number of key crew members with encased models that resemble the raptors that overran the park.
This model is based on the Velociraptor maquette created for the film SFX guru Stan Winston and his Academy Award-winning team. The maquette molds were passed to the ILM model shop, where this hand-painted crew gift model was created. The hand-painted finish features the raptors' signature mottled yellow, brown, and black palette.
Only a very small number of these crew gifts were made for key crew members, and this one was gifted to physical effects artist Michael Lantieri, who also shared in the Visual Effects Academy Award for the film. It is mounted with metal screws in a clear acrylic case with a reflective metal and wooden base. A plaque inside the case features the film's logo and reads, "Presented to: Michael Lantieri Thanks" alongside an engraving of Spielberg's signature. The case exhibits minor wear from age. Dimensions: 25.5 cm x 93 cm x 45.75 cm (10" x 36 1/2" x 18")
