Prometheus

Lot # 576 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Engineer Ampule Set

Stock #111791

A set of Engineer ampules from Ridley Scott's sci-fi prequel Prometheus. Ampules were used by the Engineers to store their terraforming biochemicals, which were unstable at room temperature. The crew of the Prometheus found cavernous rooms filled with ampules of different sizes.

The ampules were designed by Raku pottery specialist Rob Sollis, and are made of hard biscuit foam with a resin skin. The lot consists of three different-sized ampules, each with alien text etched vertically into its curving body and finished with metallic paint. The pieces come in two parts, a lid and base, which can be separated, and have been intentionally distressed to appear ancient. The lid of the smallest ampule has the handwritten note "Nipple" in black marker pen within. Besides the intentional distress there is some additional wear from production use and storage, including some scuffs and scratches on each of the ampules. Dimensions (largest ampule): 77 cm x 28 cm x 28 cm (31 1/4" x 11" x 11")
