A set of busts from the Royal Society from Aardman Productions 2012 animation adventure film The Pirates! Band of Misfits.
Pirate Captain (Hugh Grant) sets out on a mission to defeat his rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) for the Pirate of the year Award. The quest takes Captain and his crew from the shores of Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London.
Used for the scenes in which Charles Darwin (David Tennant) and the pirates attempt to win the grand prize by presenting Polly as their new discovery. The plinths are made of resin and topped with busts of Plato and Socrates. The plinths are finished in black and faux-gold paint with white and grey used to replicate the appearance of marble on the busts. Both pieces remain in very good condition with minimal additional wear from use and time spent in storage.
