Michael Jackson: Thriller

Lot # 302 - Live Auction 2017 - Michael Jackson “Cat-Face” Paint-Test Mask

Stock #73511

A Michael Jackson 'Cat-Face' paint-test mask made for the classic John Landis-directed music video Michael Jackson's Thriller. This mask was made to test the paint scheme for the cat monster Michael (Michael Jackson) turned into during the fake film at the beginning of the music video.

Made of latex, the mask resembles a sharp-fanged beast with yellow cat eyes. The piece is coloured with acrylic paints that stops at the edges. Taped inside the mask is a handwritten note which is dated 2/24/1988 and outlines the steps to accomplish the paint scheme. The lot shows minor wear to the latex, with a small tear at the corner of the mouth. However, it remains in overall very fine condition. Dimensions: 25 cm x 22 cm x 14 cm (10" x 8 1/2" x 5 1/2")

£2,000 - 3,000
