This is the ORIGINAL model of the ship figurehead created by Ray Harryhausen for "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad", and it's up for auction at Ebay. From the description;
The original stop-motion movie monster appeared in the 1974 film 'The Golden Voyage of Sinbad,' and was created by Ray Harryhausen, who inspired a generation of filmmakers and special effects wizards. After being brought to life by the villainous wizard Koura, this 8 foot tall, wooden femme fatale causes general mayham, smashing Sinbad's ship, killing a crew member, and making off with charts vital to his voyage. Cast in rubber from the same mold in which the original model was made, and hand painted by Ray Harryhausen, it was given to the current owner as a gift on his birth. It measures 14 1/4 inches high on a 1 inch high wood base (affixed there by Ray), and 9 inches across from hand to hand. It has no moving parts, and is not malleable or very flexible. This is not a limited edition. It's the only one."

I would LOVE to add this to my personal collection as this is one of my all-time favorite monster movies, but with the bidding at $20,000, I think I'll have to pass. Via SuperPunch
