Here is an absolutely amazing life-size rubber bust of the
late great Jonathan Harris as one of science fiction
television's all-time best characters, DR. ZACHARY SMITH from
the hit 1960's series Lost in Space.
The lifesize head is made of heavy, thick latex and looks very
natural and "alive" when seen in person. The paint job is
excellent, with very realistic fleshtones and shading. He has
high-gloss eyes, carefully applied hair in a custom sandy
brown/gray blend, hand-laid eyebrows and even false eyelashes
for greater realism.
If you're a fan of this show, you'll love this super RARE,
unreleased display piece. It's so nice it looks like it
belongs in a wax museum. It would look awesome on a mannequin
body outfitted with an appropriate space uniform!
I'm not absolutely certain of the original source, but I was
told it may have been a prototype sculpt that was considered
for release as a collector edition mask or bust to tie in with
the release of the big-screen LOST IN SPACE movie a few years
ago. It is a realistic human head size, which means it would
have been a little small if intended as a wearable mask.
Maybe that's why they didn't release it. (A DR. SMITH mask
was briefly offered but it was larger and made from a
different sculptural design.) In any case, this piece was
never offered to the public and only a very few copies were
