Naked Lunch

Melding Men Maquette

Stock #125142

A melding men maquette from the production of David Cronenberg's psychological drama Naked Lunch. In this film adaptation of William S. Burroughs' novel, exterminator Bill Lee (Peter Weller) hallucinated hideous, otherworldly images after becoming addicted to "bug powder".

This maquette is the work of artist Stephan Dupuis, who helped design it as a member of the Academy Award-winning SFX makeup team at Chris Walas Inc., as a concept model for Lee's vision of two men melding together. It is made of hand-painted amber-colored, black, and flesh-toned cast resin molded around a metal armature for display. The piece is mounted to a wooden base labelled "3.95" with sticker marked "C-11 279", a remnant from inclusion in a prior exhibition, applied to the bottom.

The resin on the maquette exhibits some damage, exposing the metal in the feet.
