As seen in the Dia De Muertos (Day of the Dead) opening sequence of SPECTRE, the mask is worn by Bond (Daniel Craig).
The distinctiveskull shaped mask was designed by Jany Temime, winner of two Costume Designers Guild Awards.
Jany supervised the creation of the prop, choosing to include a movable lower mandible to give better movement and expression. 'The mask had to fit well with eyes, nose and mouth in the right places and also be the right proportions' Temime says. 'Daniel’s mask is a masterpiece because you can recognise him with it on.'
The end result is a singular prop that is pivotal to one of the most visually striking and memorable scenes in recent cinema.
Themolds for this replica were cast directly from the original prop in the EON archives and each replica is hand made to exacting standards in order to create a museum quality facsimile of the original.
The original prop was constructed ofa lightweight semi-flexible material, for comfort and the practical demands of a film set. Although visually identical to the original prop, the replica has been cast in heavyweight epoxy to create a more durable display item. The replica incorporates the same articulated jaw mechanism and eyeglass arms as the original prop. It also features a fully flock-lined interior.
The edition size for this replica is just 500 pieces worldwide.
Each replica includes:
Prop story booklet which incorporates a certificate of authenticity.
Wooden display stand.
Numbered limited edition plaque.
Elastic safety Strap (Removable).
