He Sat On His Throne Which Is Made Of Skulls
A new sculpture licensed and appraised by Michael Whelan and based upon Michael’s painting for Stephen King’s The Dark Tower VII. The book was originally Published by Donald. M. Grant in the USA and Hodder & Stoughton in the UK.
Michael has had input from the very beginning and reviewed every detail of the sculpture as I worked on it. It has been my most challenging work to date and I can only hope that collectors, fans of The Dark Tower and Michael’s work, as well as my own work, approve of the finished piece and of course Stephen King and Michael Whelan himself. It has been a pleasure to have worked with Michael to make this sculpture happen!

A highly detailed piece cast in blended resin and white marble. Available in two editions, hand painted or a real bronze achieved using a specialised plating technique. A limited edition of only 250 pieces made available worldwide, including only 99 hand painted and 151 antique bronze.
Each sculpture is mounted onto a solid cherry wood base with a unique custom cut edge profile shaped to the side-on profile of a human skull. The base also has a deep undercut which gives the sculpture an aesthetic floating effect but also acts as a finger grip to aid in picking the sculpture up from a surface.
The Jesters Staff is cast in solid bronze and the hand painted edition is painted to match in with the sculpture and the original painting.
Measures 34cm at the widest (bottom of the wood base) by 40cm height. Comes supplied in a custom designed hand made ATA approved flight case which measures 48cm x 48cm x 48cm. The sculpture weighs approximately 15Kg. The total shipping weight when packed is approximately 30kg.
Every sculpture comes with a numbered limitation plate mounted into the wooden base and a certificate of authenticity signed by both Michael Whelan and I.
