Scope: Models & Props
The brief was for Unusual Projects to create models and props for the Luddite Case and to support a Civil War Pike Display.
The props for the Luddite display case included 8 Hangman’s nooses – to represent the named individuals who were hanged for Luddite activities, 11 Leg Irons -to represent the named individuals who were transported to Australia and 1 Executioners Axe – to accompany Brandreths execution block.
We also produced 85 Pike Heads, one to represent every thousand casualties of the Civil War battles. The pike heads were hand forged from metal for an authentic appearance, from this origination we created silicon moulds with allowed us to produce the quantity of heads required using museum conservation grade, cold cast resin. The heads were then hand finished to add individuality.
