A model miniature Endor tree from Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. A model miniature of the forest moon Endor was used throughout the film for sequences when shooting in Northern California's dense redwoods was prohibitive, including during the climactic Battle of Endor.
This tree, created by Industrial Light & Magic's (ILM) model makers, is constructed of highly detailed biscuit foam carved and hand-painted to appear wooden with foliage made of fake green fronds and pencil shavings affixed to the top. Also included are several loose fronds from the forest miniature. The tree is in good overall condition, but the loose fronds are fragile from age and should be handled with caution. Dimensions: 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 14" (11.5 cm x 11.5 cm x 35.75 cm)
Estimate: $4,000 - 6,000
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
