The Squeaking Tribe

Pinhead Marionette Puppet

Description

Pinhead – Born of the mind of horror-fantasist Clive Barker, Pinhead is the leading Cenobite and the Priest of Hell from his original short fiction, “The Hellbound Heart”. He first appeared in the early 80s in the movie “Hellraiser” directed by Barker himself and went on to inspire no less than eight sequels and spin-offs in a franchise that included comics series, countless artworks and interactive world-building across a plethora of multimedia platforms. Pinhead is one of the leaders of the Cenobites, said to be humans who were later transformed into demonic creatures blindly devoted to the practice of experimental sadomasochism. They exist in an extra-dimensional realm that is Hell or one of many versions of Hell that co-exist and are usually only summoned to Earth through puzzle boxes, such as the Lemarchand (or Lament) Configuration His fashion draws on the violence and sexuality of domination, pleasure and pain, a bespoke couture of leather and steel which is a fabulous challenge for any interactive artist such as myself to reproduce. The gloss of his carapace adorned with complicated metal jewellery is a fabulous detail truly worthy of any Damned Prince and one I am most proud of. Certainly, a perfect piece of artwok for any collector of Horror arcana. Halloween Horror Show: Frightening can be fun! It’s no surprise that many people find marionettes creepy or scary, no matter how cute you try to make them. And so it is with no small relish that I find myself indulging the darker side of story and my own fascination with the macabre in creating a range of puppets to celebrate the shadows and the sinister. Here, horror icons from the silver screen rub shoulders with other things of nightmare in a grand monster mash of ghoulish celebration. Enter if you dare – here there be monsters!
