VULCAN MUMMIES

Now up for auction!!!!

Two prop mummies made from hard carved foam, wrapped in gauze, mounted on wood backboards, both with Vulcan pointed ears, both -- 65in. high -- used as set dressing in the ancient catacombs beneath the Vulcan P'Jem monastery in "The Andorian Incident" in Star Trek: Enterprise (2)

These props started life as ordinary mummies, available for rent at a Hollywood prop rental company. Star Trek makeup artist Michael Westmore modified them with the addition of Vulcan pointed ears, thus transforming them from Earthly mummies to ancient Vulcan priests from a distant world.

800 - 1,200 U.S. Dollars



Well, that seems reasonable.

Do YOU care for mummies, Brian?! I couldn't tell the difference between an Egyptian and an Incan...

Mummies in general are pretty cool. Mummies with Vulcan ears are spectacular. ; )
