Dejah, The Martian Princess, Makes For One Beautiful Statue


John Carter, and to a great effect Edgar Rice Burroughs, was done wrong by Disney. The Mars series of books are fun, if not pulpy, works of science fiction and deserve proper translation to the big screen. However, until another studio decides to take a chance on a big-budget sprawling sci-fi epic, we’re going to have to make do with comics, books, and collectibles.
This new PCS statue of Dejah Thoris, the Princess of Mars, will do nicely. I don’t really need to say much. Look at her! The statue stands 33.5″ tall and is estimated to ship out between December and March 2023. She’s ain’t cheap, either. Dejah will set you back $1,250.

The Dejah Thoris 1:3 Scale Statue measures 35.5” tall and 15” wide as she stands chained to a large white tusk in the hostile landscape of Mars. Additional bones and skulls are embedded in the rock at her feet, including the uniquely shaped remains of a green Martian. The statue is fully sculpted apart from the silver link shackles on her wrists and the decorative gold chains on her chest. Dejah Thoris’ portrait features a cascade of black hair and metallic makeup accents complementing her customary gold Martian ensemble, which includes an ornate crown, arm cuffs, a thong bikini, and strapped sandals.

And before some of you get offended by how Dejah is represented here, the inhabitants of Mars in Burroughs’s works preferred to go around sans clothing. So, technically, she’s wearing more in this statue than she did in her first appearance in 1917’s A Princess of Mars:

“And the sight which met my eyes was that of a slender, girlish figure, similar in every detail to the earthly women of my past life. She did not see me at first, but just as she was disappearing through the portal of the building which was to be her prison she turned, and her eyes met mine. Her face was oval and beautiful in the extreme, her every feature was finely chiseled and exquisite, her eyes large and lustrous and her head surmounted by a mass of coal black, waving hair, caught loosely into a strange yet becoming coiffure. Her skin was of a light reddish copper color, against which the crimson glow of her cheeks and the ruby of her beautifully molded lips shone with a strangely enhancing effect.”
