A Duros cantina alien mask from George Lucas' Star Wars: A New Hope. Two Duros aliens appeared in a corner booth in the iconic cantina scene.

After principal photography, George Lucas decided to reshoot the cantina scene with more aliens, so miniature and optical effects artist Phil Tippett joined Rick Baker's makeup department to help construct additional creature costumes.

This padded slip latex mask is painted dark green with multiple brow and cheek wrinkles, inset with two red plastic eyes, and mounted in an acrylic display case for protection from the elements. A slit down the back of the mask features a Velcro closure hidden inside. This mask is in delicate but good overall condition, with the mask exhibiting visible signs of age, including slight discoloration and flaking latex. This lot comes from the collection of Tippett, who designed and created the Duros masks for the film.

Includes a letter of authenticity from Phil Tippett.
