Jivotica is proud to present Series 1 in a new collection of fan art
based on The Dark Crystal. Rather than make statues of the various characters
from this film (companies like MINDstyle, Plan-B and NECA are already
doing that), we have chosen to focus on the non-character elements of
the film - the architecture, props and symbols of the world created
by Jim Henson, Brian Froud and a host of other enormously talented artists.
offering these pieces as our way of celebrating the film and (given
how little has been produced for fans of the Dark Crystal) to help fellow
collectors flesh out their collections.
This triangular relief represents the Great Conjunction as seen by the
Skeksi. The three suns are seen in the corners of the triangle on their
inevitable path toward the center. The vulture/worm-like symbol of the
Skeksi dominates the center preparing to devour the suns as they converge
thereby ensuring the Skeksi rule forever.
The carved representation of the Great Conjunction fashioned by the
Mystics is also in the form of a triangle - though by contrast, it is
a marvel of gentle balance and harmony symbolizing the Mystic's incorruptible
respect for the forces of nature and their desire for peace in the world.
