2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968) – Ape Mask Appliance

Starting: $1,000

An ape mask appliance from Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi epic 2001: A Space Odyssey. In the iconic “Dawn of Man” sequence, apes discovered tools after encountering a massive black monolith. The apes’ facial appliances were designed by makeup artist Stuart Freeborn.

This original walnut-color foam latex ape appliance is mounted to a velvet-lined urethane display base. The appliance is in good overall condition, though the latex is fragile and exhibits some flaking and hardening from age.

Dimensions: 11″ x 7 1/2″ x 15″ (28 cm x 19 cm x 38.25 cm)
