A custom-made replica Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) make-up bust from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
This conclusion to the Star Wars prequel trilogy is set three years into the Clone War. Senator Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) is rescued from Count Dooku (Christopher Lee) by the Jedi. Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) is called to deal with a new threat, while Anakin (Hayden Christensen) is drawn into a dark plan for galactic power as he simultaneously tries to work for the Jedi Council and Palpatine.
The bust depicts Anakin after his fight with Obi-Wan on Mustafar, in which he was defeated and left heavily burned by the planet's flowing rivers of lava. The bust was created after the production by Academy Award-winning make-up effects supervisor Dave Elsey, whose name is carved into the back. Made of fibreglass with a layer of resin, the bust was derived from a casting of Christensen's head with make-up appliances from the original production moulds applied. It has been expertly and precisely hand-painted to look as gruesome and realistic as possible, with burned clothing and grotesque flaps of skin to add to the effect of the piece.
The bust has some wear from storage, including some areas where the resin has chipped away, most notably at the base and on the shoulders. Overall it remains in a very good condition.
Materials: Fibreglass, Resin.
