Original Chris Foss concept sketch of the Derelict Ship interior for Alien. The image depicts a member of the Nostromo landing party descending into a vast and ornate sepulcher. The sketch shows Foss’ celebrated skill while markedly devoid of the later influence of H.R. Giger. Accomplished in pencil, ink and gouache on 29 x 18 in. artist leaf. Handwritten notations “Centre of the Tombe”, “Alien” and “Chris Foss F 77” at the lower border. Verso features a sticker in the upper left reading “Chris Foss – 7. Centre of the Tombe”.
