OTHER: Prototype Bat Cowl Sculpt From Batman (1989)

This is the first prototype sculpt for the Bat cowl from Tim Burton's film Batman (1989).

"The "Batsuit" for the film was designed by Academy Award-nominated costume designer Bob Ringwood, and this sculpt was used by Ringwood and the production as a fundamental stage of defining the look of Batman's iconic cowl. It was ultimately inspected and approved by Burton himself."

"It is made of hollowed white plaster and features a likeness of Keaton. The cowl part of the sculpt has been given a brown wash to differentiate it from the face, eyes and chest. It has some wear from production use and age, with scuffing, scratches and some minor chipping to the plaster. The tip of one of Batman's "ears" has broken away."

"Dimensions: 35 cm x 58 cm x 54 cm (13 3/4" x 22 3/4" x 21 1/4")"

This sculpt was sold on September 30th, 2019 for $4,000 with the Propstore auction.
