Life Size Hand-Made Statue of the Sci-Fi Monster Predator
Life Size Hand-Made Statue of the Sci-Fi Monster Predator from the widely known "Predator" franchise with 4(four) movies being made so far starting in 1987 and a fifth movie coming out in 2018.
This statue is one of a kind. It has never been made or imagined the way I have created it. The movie depiction of the creature was limited because there was a man wearing a suit, so I was free to depict the Predator as he is meant to be, an other-worldly monster.
There are other statues of predators out there but they are made as a single piece out of metal or plastic from a single mold or made out of scrap metal (bolts, car parts etc). This Predator was all handmade, all his armor and gear and hair etc was made separately by hand. For example, on the left shoulder he has the 'shoulder cannon' which is not carved from one piece, but is made from 138 different and unique parts, the cannon can move around, turn and folds back on his back like in the movies. His spear is 2530mm long, and is made mostly from steel and aluminium. The right hand was made in such a way that the spear can be placed in its hand with a secure bolt for security to keep it in place. The left arm is equipped with the computer (as seen in the movies), fully functional with buttons and lights that are powered by a rechargeable 12V battery. Also like in the movies the Predator blood glows a fluorescent green, so for effect I used fluorescent green paint that glows in the dark.
I see this Statue in a unique estate as part of a home, office or foyer decoration, or can be part of the Movie-World establishment, or a part of a collection of sculptures and movie art. The options are there, it even can be a decoration on the famous unique luxury yacht with the same name "Predator" (SuperYachtFan).
This Predator Statue has a metal skeleton and is made of three different types of cement and clay.
Total weight is roughly 350 kg. The top and final layer is covered with hard, durable and water resistant paint.
I have to say I spent about 8 years in creating it and enjoyed it very much so I am convinced that there is no other like it out there.
The statue stands 2400mm tall and is 960mm wide at the shoulders.
