A small-sized, two-part Engineer ampule from Ridley Scott’s 2012 mystery sci-fi prequel Prometheus.
Led to a distant planet by ancient wall paintings, scientists Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) join a corporate sponsored mission to discover the source of life on Earth. But in the ruins of an alien space craft, the human explorers soon find that all is not as it seems, and a great threat lurks in its deep holds.
Three different sizes of these memorable pieces were made and seen in the Ampule Chamber, with this piece the second largest of the three. ‘Raku’ pottery specialist Rob Sollis was recruited to craft the pivotal urns which took interesting inspiration from delicate Roman glass. This particular version is created from hard biscuit foam with a resin skin. Each ampule has alien text etched vertically into the gently curving body and every unit has its own bespoke special metallic paint effect incorporating silver, gold, brass and even blue colours to achieve an ethereal presence. In addition to the outstanding paint effect, each ampule was distressed to reflect its ancient heritage.
The ampule is in two pieces, with a lid and a base. Well-used on the production, the ampule displays some scuffs and scratches revealing the cream coloured resin beneath, minor holes and some paint distressing. The lid does not sit flush on the base. However, the piece remains in a good condition.
Materials: Biscuit Foam, Resin.
