DescriptionStar Wars – Episode IV Original Painting by Harrison Ellenshaw (20th Century Fox, 1977/2006). Here is an extraordinary Star Wars painting by Harrison Ellenshaw. Ellenshaw started his career as a matte painter and visual effects artist at the Walt Disney Studios before joining George Lucas' special effects studio, Industrial Light and Magic. There Ellenshaw would produce many of the matte visual effects for the blockbuster, Star Wars (1977) and later The Empire Strikes Back (1980). In this amazing piece we see a Sandcrawler on the Outer Rim desert world of Tatooine with several Jawas carrying R2D2. Jawas were a sentient species of meter-tall humanoids native to Tatooine. Sandcrawlers were huge mobile fortresses used by the Jawas as their transport and shelter in the deserts of Tatooine and Arvala-7. This RARE one-of-a-kind interpretive piece was rendered in acrylic and mixed media on 11" x 14" board. The artwork is hand-signed in paint by the artist and framed to 17" x 14.5". Frame sold as-is. A "must-have" for Star Wars fans! Overall condition is Very Good.
