Lot Details
A Paul Iribe Anubis figure made for The Ten Commandments
Paramount, 1923. Born in France in 1883, Paul Iribe began his career as an illustrator for French satirical journals. He moved to the United States in 1917 and began illustrating for Vogue, moving on to design costumes for the Broadway musical The Rose Girl. He was then hired by Cecil B. DeMille and Jesse Lasky to work on The Affairs of Anatol (1921), and would continue to work as DeMille's art director for the remainder of the silent era. Iribe's monumental Egyptian sets for The Ten Commandments included ten-story high walls covered in hieroglyphs, statues of Rameses II, sphinxes, and even today are considered one of the most extensive film sets ever constructed.
