A rare and original Thames Dock Pirate Head on pike stop motion puppet from Aardman Animation’s 2012 adventure comedy The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!
Pirate Captain (Hugh Grant) is determined to win the Pirate of the Year Award and defeat his rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek). His quest takes him and his crew from their home on Blood Island, to the streets of Victorian London.
This unfortunate pirate and others like it can be seen in the background on Thames Dock, serving as a warning to all buccaneers sailing into London that under no circumstances will pirates be tolerated by the evil Queen Victoria!
Fed through a wooden pike, the head itself is made entirely from resin and displays great detail including a shaggy grey coloured beard and a blood shot eye. The wood displays minor surface wear and the end is light damaged. A small amount of dried glue at the base of the pike that would have been applied during filming to ensure it was securely positioned. The piece remains in very good condition.
Materials: Wood, Resin.
