Bloody stunt tire iron used in the production of the hit NBC television series Hannibal. Gifted criminal profiler Will Graham has a unique way of thinking that allows him to empathize with anyone, including psychopaths. But while helping the FBI pursue a particularly complicated serial killer, he decides he could use some help and enlists the brilliant psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter. The two form a partnership and it seems that there is no villain they can’t catch together, but Lecter harbors a dark secret. His own brilliant mind has gone to the dark side and he has more in common with the criminals they hunt than Will could possibly imagine.
This stunt tire iron was featured in the sixth episode of the series entitled “Entrée”. In this episode Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and Miriam Lass (Anna Chlumsky) investigate a murder in which a man was impaled by various tools as a reference to the “Wound Man” illustration from the Middle Ages. Found sticking out of the victim’s head, this prop was one of several tools and pieces of hardware found impaled into the “Wound Man” body. Made of foam cast around a white resin core, this stunt tire iron features black and silver paint detail to give the illusion that the item is metallic. The piece remains covered in dried stage blood applied during production. The item shows slight wear consistent with production, but remains in overall good condition. Dimensions: 17” x 6” x 1½” (43 cm x 15 cm x 4 cm)
This item comes with a Hero Prop Certificate of Authenticity
