Mediating its way from your hands to your heart! Fritz Lang’s 1927phenomenon, “Metropolis” returns in this intricately faithful reproduction of famed creative
mind Walter Schulze-Mittendorf’s Machine Man “Maria”. The “Maschinenmensch”, the fictional robot from Fritz Lang’s silent film Metropolis, was originally
played by German actress Brigitte Helm, both as the titular robot “gynoid” and its human form. In the movie, the robot was created by the scientist Rotwang as an
approximation of his former lover, Hel Maschinenmensch was one of the first, and perhaps most iconic fictional robots ever depicted in cinema, and went on to be
one of the primary influences of robotic design in both feature film, television and technology. The 1:8 scale model features Maria in her/its most iconic pose, as it stands
with an air of awe and deepest fascination for Rotwang’s greatest creation. The model design itself has been inspired by the original iconic movie poster, along with
the chair that Machine-Man Maria stands up from, that acts as an appropriately dramatic base for the model. As an added detail, avid fans of the classic silent film will
appreciate the flavour text found at the back of the throne as well as “HEL” embossed in the iconic Metropolis typeface; a reminder of the original form of Rotwang’s obsession.
