Science fiction meets steampunk in this Bellino Alain sculpture of Darth Vader’s iconic helmet. Using brass ornaments, the talented sculptor managed to create this ultra fanciful mask inspired by the Star Wars villain. The resulting product is visually astonishing as viewers get to see what the memorable movie character would look like if he existed during the Victorian era. Even with all the flowery frills embedded onto his suit, Darth Vader still looks like a total badass.

Bellino Alain is a French sculptor who specializes in metalwork. He regularly crafts mythical creatures, landmarks, dinosaurs and skulls using brass materials. His Darth Vader sculpture is his first foray into producing a cinema-related piece, but his lower profile creations like the Cockatrice are still noteworthy for their meticulous details.
