    Description

    Jack Kirby and Mike Royer - "Lord of Light" Presentation Piece Original Art (1978). When it came to creating fantastic costumes for God-like characters, alien races, or science fiction heroes, Jack Kirby simply had no peers. In the late seventies, Kirby was commissioned to design the visuals for a film based on Roger Zelazny's novel, Lord of Light. A theme park also using Kirby concepts was planned, but the project was never realized. A key concept from the novel was the blending of Hindu mysticism from Ancient India with a modern technological society. As a result, this character sports the most ornate cosmic costume this side of Galactus! The splash page has an image area of 10.5" x 17.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
