A full-size velociraptor cage from Steven Spielberg's sci-fi action-adventure Jurassic Park. During the opening scene of the film, the deadly velociraptors were in the middle of being transferred from a large travel cage to a more permanent holding cell when the velociraptors grabbed hold of one of the guards and pulled him into their cage, the very first of the many iconic dinosaur kills that the franchise has become known for.
This highly-memorable, large set piece was custom-made for the film of metal and wood, painted light blue, with both horizontal and vertical slats, diagonal cross beams, reinforced corners, a solid metal bottom, metal ladder rungs on the sides, and the word "LOCK" painted on both sides. The cage is in fair overall condition with wear from production and age; it has been in outdoor storage conditions and there is a large amount of deterioration to the paint finish, especially.
