Trust - Lapith vs Centaur panel FX Network - Production Designer Patrick Rolfe

This full size replica of one of the panels of the Parthenon Metopes (also known as the Elgin Marbles) – Lapith vs Centaur - was created for the high-end television drama, 'TRUST' produced by FX Network. The series is set in 1973 and recounts the abduction of John Paul Getty III, then-heir to Getty Oil, while he was in Italy. It aired on BBC 2 in Autumn 2018.

Using detailed drawings we roughly modelled the panel in Freeform Plus then machined it on our KUKA robotic arm. Our sculptor Stan Mitchell then built up a clay layer and added fine detail over the roughed panel.

The sculpted panel was moulded in silicone and a GRP panel was produced which was painted and aged to match the original panel.
