A very rare character mask seen on screen in the Starfleet Federation Council scene in the beginning of Star Trek: The Voyage Home. This mask features the likeness of the alien species, the "Caitian", who have only been seen before this as animated characters in the Star Trek Animated Series. This foam latex mask features yellow colored glass eyes with hand punched dark and light brown hair. The mask features large ears with a scowl on the face. The mask has been restored by it's creator Richard Snell shortly before his passing, the restoration included a touch up of the paint, and re-punching of missing hair. This item is mounted on a custom black acrylic display base with a large clear acrylic case (not pictured). Item measures 12" x 12" x 12", remains in excellent screen used condition, and comes from the collection of Mel Cefros, one of the films producers. This item can also be seen in "The Art of Star Trek" book by Judith and Garfield Reeves.
