Alien Memorabilia

We at Nate D. Sanders Auction House (http://www.NateDSanders.com) sold the ultimate original Alien memorabilia, HR Giger’s original space jockey from the Alien movie in 1979.  It sold for $31,250.  This is the first time that a space jockey has come up for auction.  This Alien memorabilia was obtained by Nate D. Sanders directly from Peter Beale, 1970’s managing director at 20th Century Fox Productions and the executive in charge of the production of Star Wars, Alien, The Omen, Julia, The Rocky Horror Picture, etc.  HR Giger personally gifted Peter Beale with this HR Giger art space jockey, aka Alien memorabilia.

Description of this fabulous piece of Alien memorabilia:

Scarce model from the 1979 film “Alien” of the famed “Space Jockey” character aboard the “Derelict Spaceship” (aka Alien memorabilia), designed and hand-painted by H.R. Giger. One of the most recognizable scenes in sci-fi cinema, the haunting Space Jockey aka The Pilot, found dead aboard the alien spaceship, was conceived and designed by famed Swiss surrealist painter, sculptor and visual effects artist H.R. Giger, whose work on “Alien” won an Academy Award in 1980.

The enormous Space Jockey (aka Alien memorabilia) and cavernous spaceship are quintessential Giger, renowned for human-machine melded beings called biomechanoids; the walls of the spaceship appear to be either vertebrae from a once living creature, or cogs in a vast industrial machine system, or perhaps both. Space Jockey is fused into his command station and wears either a mask, or has a elephantine trunk extending from his face. In the “Alien” set — which was built based on this model — Space Jockey sits 26 feet tall, dwarfing the characters of Kane, Dallas and Lambert who find him dead, his rib cage blasted open, serving as foreshadowing to what awaits the crew later in the film.

So pivotal was the scene — establishing the world of the Alien creature and serving as ground zero for the film’s mythology — that Ridley Scott insisted upon its construction, despite the enormous cost of building the life-size (or larger than life) set. Space Jockey so enthralled the audience of “Alien”, that the character would even go on to serve as a critical and central story point in Scott’s “Promethus”, the “Alien” origin story released in 2012.

The Alien memorabilia model is reportedly one of only three known to exist and comes from the collection of Peter Beale, 20th Century Fox executive who was given the model by Giger and whose LOA accompanies the Alien memorabilia piece. The original mold was intentionally broken into smaller parts to be used by the technicians who constructed the set, so the remaining models are the only extant original sculptures of the scene. This Alien memorabilia model measures 43″ wide x 36″ long x 16.25″ high, hand painted in tones of grey, brown and black by Giger. Space Jockey is fused into his pilot seat, which swivels around on a circular platform. The swiveling piece can be removed and measures 13.5″ long x 10.25″ high x 4.5″ wide. Entire model weighs over 47 lbs., glued to a painted sheet of plywood. A few chips to the resin, otherwise in near fine condition. One of the finest Alien memorabilia items to be sold at auction.
