oh yes. i've seen it. i've been looking at it. i've been staring at it. i've been glaring at it. and i've been gazing at it. i was standing right in front of it. i was close to it. so close, i could almost touch it. i was as close as possible to it. and i've examined it. for minutes. and i enjoyed every single second. i've been surveying it from every possible angle. from top to bottom, from the front to the rear side, from the left to the right side. i admit, i almost drooled. i admit, i almost forgot about my environment. my eyes were fixated on it, and i admired it. the prop. the film prop. the film prop of alien 1. the original head of the ALIEN! unfortunately the years have afflicted it. but still one could see the wires and cables that were used to move the lips, the mouth, and the jaws. the coating was totally removed, either intentionally or because of decay - i don't know. it was pretty impressive (as one might guess from my words before). you can have a look at it yourself at the h.r.giger exhibition in the kunsthaus in vienna. loads of famous paintings are there. i was surprised of the seize some of the images have. again pretty impressive. oh, and you can also have a closer look at the harkonnen furniture. cool chairs actually, i had the honour to sit in one back in the 1980's, when i was on vacation via interrail and stayed a few days in zuerich. in chur there is the famous giger-bar where i drank a cafe. really nice cafe and nice inventory they have there. oh, and when i was in zuerich, i opened up the telephon-book, looked for "giger" and found his number. so i called there, if i could have a look at his garden, which i knew from television reports. unfortunately h.r.giger himself was not in zuerich at this time as his secretary told me, but i could have a look whenever i'd like to. that was really cool! unfortunately back in those days digital cameras were not affordable (maybe they even weren't produced yet - i don't know), but i have taken some analogue pictures, which i'm too lazy to scan right now. all in all i can really recommend this exhibition.
