    H.R. Giger’s ‘Alien’ Sculpture Transformed into NFT Collection

    The world of digital art is on the brink of a momentous occasion as Particle, a Web3 start-up, prepares to launch the sale of 500 NFTs based on a remarkable sculpture by the legendary artist H.R. Giger. This extraordinary artwork, featuring an imposing Xenomorph installation, will become the latest significant piece to be tokenized on the blockchain.

    A Blockchain Invasion by Terrifying Xenomorphs
    Particle, known for offering fractionalized ownership of culturally significant artworks, is providing collectors with a unique opportunity to own a portion of “Necronom/Alien III, 2005”. This exclusive sculpture, designed by the Academy Award-winning artist, showcases the iconic Xenomorph from the renowned 1979 sci-fi horror classic, Alien.

    As the first installment in a collection of six statues, this sculpture holds a special place in the Giger art universe. “It is the only one following the prototype that was made by Giger himself, and the prototype remains at the Giger museum,” revealed Harold Eytan, CEO of Particle. The intricately detailed work is crafted from steel and polyester resin, measuring over seven feet in length and three feet in height.

    Owning a Piece of the Physical Sculpture
    By offering digital “particles” of the sculpture, the platform enables individuals to own a stake in this highly valued artwork. Each NFT will represent a 1/500 share, with a total value of half a million dollars. These tokens will be available for purchase at $1,000 each, starting from June 16.

    In a modern twist on art ownership, Alien particle holders will have a say in the future of the physical sculpture. If an offer to purchase the sculpture arises, token holders will vote on whether it should be sold.

    Showcasing the Sculpture at NFC Lisbon
    Prior to its digital debut, the sculpture will be prominently displayed. From June 7-8, it will be exhibited at NFC Lisbon under Particle’s ownership and in collaboration with the H.R. Giger Museum. Following this, it will be featured as part of the Giger-centric exhibition, “Metamorphoses,” at the Hluboká Castle in Prague, before making appearances at Art Basel in Switzerland and another venue in Paris.

    As a gesture of gratitude to its community, Particle is offering a discounted rate to owners of “Love is in the Air” particles. These individuals will have the opportunity to purchase Alien particles at a special early access sale price of $800, adding another layer of innovation to this revolutionary fusion of traditional and digital art markets.
