Update with VIDEO: Fizzgig Puppet from Jim Henson's "The Dark Crystal" Up For Auction

CLICK HERE to visit the Fizzgig Auction Page

A Fizzgig puppet from Frank Oz and Jim Henson’s fantasy film "The Dark Crystal". Fizzgig accompanied Jen and Kira on their journey to the Castle of the Crystal to defeat the evil Skeksis. Along with many of the other mythical creatures in the film, Fizzgig was designed by Brian Froud, who later worked again with Henson on "Labyrinth". 

The puppet is made almost entirely of faux-fur lined with cotton netting. It features yellow glass eyes and two small paws made of foam with resin claws and internal wire allowing them to be easily posed. The inside of mouth is made from pink foam with three rows of tiny resin teeth. The puppet is presented on a custom made display stand and besides some minor cracking to the foam on his nose and roof of his mouth as a result of age, the piece remains overall in very good condition. Dimensions: 65 cm x 17 cm x 13 cm (25 ½” x 6 ¾” x 5 ¼”) 

Estimate: £8,000-10,000 
Starting Bid at £4,000
Begins on September 23rd, 2015
