Artist, designer, and sculptor, Wah Chang was not only a source of inspiration for Ray, but was also a friend. He created maquettes for Disney Studios that were used as reference for the animators. Three of these are currently in the Foundation’s collection. All three are from Pinocchio and were given to Ray by Chang.
Prototype bust of the Ymir from Million Miles to Earth sculpted by Ray Harryhausen. It's fascinating to note that the cyclops motif stuck with the many prototypes of this character before the final design was decided upon.
