Lot # 585 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Sonja Klaus Collection: Engineer Ampule and Spore Containers

Stock #108198

An Engineer ampule and spore containers from Ridley Scott's sci-fi prequel Prometheus. This comes from the personal collection of the film's set decorator Sonja Klaus. Ampules were used by the Engineers to store their biochemical creations, which were unstable at room temperature. The crew of the Prometheus found cavernous rooms filled with ampules of different sizes. David (Michael Fassbender) took one and opened it on the Prometheus, using the chemicals within one of its spore containers to infect Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green).

The ampule was designed by Raku pottery specialist Rob Sollis - whose name is debossed on the bottom - and is made of hard biscuit foam with a resin skin and black rubber lining. The ampule has alien text etched vertically into its curved body, which is finished in a metallic paint. Four translucent plastic spores, designed to mimic glass, sit inside the ampule attached to a faux-bone structure. The spores and bone have been hand-painted to look as realistic as possible, and the piece has been intentionally distressed to appear ancient. Two of the spores contain a clear liquid. The piece has some wear from production use, including scuffing and scratching, most notably around the rim of the ampule. Dimensions: 17 cm x 17 cm x 37 cm (6 3/4" x 6 3/4" x 14 1/2")
