The lower section of the tablet features a large person carving symbols. The characteristic ‘star map’ which is analysed during the film, can be seen on the top section of the tablet. This large prop is made from a biscuit foam cast which has had a hard resin skin applied on the outside. The mould has been carved, painted and detailed in a sand coloured stone effect, then chipped to give an aged appearance. Teo cosmetic cracks have been added to the top left to illustrate that the piece of stone has come from a larger piece of artwork. It has been mounted on top of a green screen pole which would have been edited out to give the tablet a suspended appearance when used in the production. There is a small area of damage to the top right of the tablet where the foam has separated from the skin. This unique tablet is in good production used condition and measures 55cm x 44cm x 8cm (21.5” x 17.5” x 3").
