Dawn Treader Concept Art 7 - Magician's Mansion

As Lucy walks through the main door of the Magicians Mansion, she enters a low lit hallway.  Dioramas are set into arched recesses on each side, most of which are only seen very briefly. Below are the concepts for these Dioramas. It's a shame they weren’t more visible as the prop department did a great job with them.

Diorama concepts... a bird theme runs throughout the Mansion, especially with the lighting props

Initial Lighting prop designs. These sketches were based upon Moroccan style.
We tried a few more interesting designs with these wall mounted candle holder sketches...
Final colour designs - later to be amended (Further down)

Bell Jars...

Initial Sketches...

Polyhedral Dials... The original sketches were a little too detailed...
The final designs were a lot simpler and easier to make...

Orrery...

Lucy's Mirror-initial concepts. This was to be the mirror that Lucy steps through in her dream (as Susan)

A simpler design...

The final design is a simpler timber version from the centre of the initial concept sketch...


Chairs and tables...

I created these orthographic sheets based on existing designs from books...


Hanging hallway chandeliers...

Hanging Chandeliers with birds...
