Harryhausen's Homunculus

"The Golden Voyage of Sinbad" featured this little critter, basically the 1001 Arabians nights version of the stool pigeon: The Homunculus. The eyes and ears of the evil Grand Vizier of Marabia were sculpted by Joe Laudati, a specialist when it comes to Stop-Motion Creatures. Its 1:1 scale and was done in the late 90ties of the past century .... did I mention it's quite rare?
