The Matriarch - MA Prosthetics Effects Study Block 2

The ‘Matriarch’ is a reimagining of the Alien Queen from James Cameron’s Aliens (1986). Like in the film, this scale model uses external rods to interact in certain shots, in particular the scenes within the egg chamber. 
Within the Alien franchise, a caste system is developed largely exploring a more arthropodal nature with references to “hives” and “drones” denoting the ‘Alien Queen’ as the head of the caste. In my version, the Matriarch represents a deeper evolution of the alien monarchy and society.
