Tom Southwell was kind enough to share pics/measurement of his tile when I'd
asked him (see Tom Southwell Q & A page 1Cool
There's 2 designs: one you'll see when the owl is being filmed, and the other was used also in the corridor of the Snake Pit.
I took pics with the tile being lit from different angles.

Nice work!! Always liked that tile.

Thanks Tony; it's made with plastic wall-corner (if you've built walls, you know what I'm talking about Wink )
Cardboard pyramid and blue foam. Gotta paint it also.

Very cool. Was disappointed that I didnít see those in the new film when they went into the Tyrell archive.

Thanks guys It's not a "popular" tile (compared to the Ennis one) but, as you know, I like obscure props and this one certainly fits the bill.

That's very cool! I don't think I've even noticed that particular design before.

Neither have I. Where does it appear in the film?

It appears the first time when Leon gets his V.K. test; it's behind Holden acting as a partition. Then it's in Tyrell's big room where Deckard meets Rachael for the first time (especially when you see the owl flying).

Same design is also on the door at Tyrell's as well as a border on top of the big table Wink

Then, there's a few at the bottom of the corridor at The Snake Pit. Corridor where Deckard waits for Zhora.

The big set where they filmed Rachaelís VK scene was repurposed for three set-ups; Tyrellís office, the Leon interview room with some partitioning and finally as Tyrellís bedroom. So the tile design will have stayed in some shots because it was part of the Ďfabricí of the set.

Well done! That's a fantastic project.

I can't say I ever noticed them at the snake pit. Now I have a reason to watch the movie again. Smile

Noeland, I forgot to mentioned that The Snake Pit corridor, and the tiles, can only be seen with some stills of Batty in his costume...
