Ray Harryhausen's Talos

Limited Edition Sculptures

 

Talos Awakes

Talos is kneeling on the plinth, head turned, as he was when he first came to life
in the 1963 cult classic film Jason and the Argonauts.

Ray had started work on this sculpture in the 1990s; he had made the plinth
for Talos to kneel on but had not sculpted the figure of Talos.

The plinth was loaned to us by the Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation to mould,
for the figure of Talos we have worked directly from the original model.
Talos was first scanned and printed in very high resolution, the 3D print
then underwent painstaking, sympathetic restoration. Once restored Talos was
carefully repositioned into the kneeling stance, with meticulous attention
to detail at every stage. The whole process took several years to complete.


We are now taking reservations for both the full size and miniatures of Talos Awakes in bronze.

We have been working with The Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation to produce a full size
and a half size reproduction of a sculpture of Talos made by Ray in the 1990's.

The original model who starred in the 1963 film Jason and the Argonauts had deteriorated
significantly and Ray made this sculpture to create a permanent reminder of Talos.

The bronze Ray made for himself can be seen on page 216 of The Art of Ray Harryhausen.

For this full size reproduction we were loaned the original mould that Ray had made.
We have cast our waxes directly from this mould.

Talos has been cast as a numbered limited edition of just nine full size bronzes, all of these are now reserved.
We have also cast an edition of twenty five bronze sculptures at half size which we are currently working on.
For the half size bronzes please alow a waiting time of 4 to 6 weeks from ordering.
Please for further information.
