Ray Harryhausen original sculpture, #10 in the limited edition of 12 created in the early 1990s, and then cast in 2010, the last work of fine art by the cinematic trailblazer before his passing. Entitled ''Giving Life to Fantasy'', this self-portrait sculpture depicts Harryhausen as he wanted to be remembered, filming the animated creatures of his imagination: the Cyclops and Dragon in their climactic battle in ''The 7th Voyage of Sinbad''. Other personal touches in this detailed sculpture include Harryhausen's Giant Octopus from ''It Came from Beneath the Sea'' in a box on the floor (along with his inspiration, the gorilla from ''King Kong''), and his Brontosaurus from ''The Animal World'' on the side table. Signed and numbered by Harryhausen on the corner of the table, ''Ray Harryhausen 10/12''. Sculpture stands on a green marble and wooden base, with entire presentation measuring 19'' x 11.5'' x approximately 11'' tall, and weighing nearly 50 lbs. Some light patina to bronze, overall near fine condition.
