Spaceship Earth Original Artwork

Today we will have a closer look to the original renderings for Epcot icon: Spaceship Earth, beginning by this Herb Ryman painting showing the exterior above.

Next renderings are some artwork for the cro-magnon cave sequence.

Strangely, it seems that a scene with dinosaurs was considered before being cancelled.

Here is the rendering of the egyptian temple sequence.

This one is for the Phenician scene.

Three renderings , now, for the Gutenberg press scene.

Artwork for the Michelangelo - Sixtine chapel scene.

Two artwork for a scene called "the age of invention"

The model for the telephone-telegraph scene of the "age of invention"

Let's end with three artwork for the outer space "planetarium" sequence as it was envisioned at the beginning

Thanks to leave a comment or discuss this interview on D&M english forum on Mice Chat

It is rather interesting for me to read this blog. Thanks for it. I like such topics and anything connected to this matter. I definitely want to read a bit more soon.

Good topic...its striking to me as I'm guessing that some of those concepts were changed since they were covered in other parts of EPCOT Center, like the dinosaur scene and possibly even some of the space scenery.

I know there were a few more different concept pictures of the outer look of the sphere.

These things are beautiful.

Any idea of where one can buy a nice print of that top one?
