The second piece in the "Icones" collection. This is a stunning resin replica of the invention of Professor Calculus, which has been produced with strict faithfulness.
The submarine is fixed on a transparent stand at the right height to give the impression that the craft is floating above the ground. The base is painted yellow to give the impression of the sand on the seabed.
The model is neither too big nor too small and has been reduced to a suitable size to integrate harmoniously with the other pieces in the collection.
Each of the "Icones" comes in a special box with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
“In June 1979 a major exhibition, which would later be hosted in other venues, was inaugurated at the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels. Hergé was not involved in the detail of the exhibition but the creators explained that the purpose was to put some of the objects that Tintin comes across in his adventures alongside the real objects that inspired them. On the poster he created for the exhibition Hergé drew his main characters in the middle of an imaginary display, the stuff of dreams for Tintin fans and collectors.”
Taken from Chronologie d’une œuvre – volume 7.
