$281,400 ‘Golden Compass’ Prototype Designed by Tanaka Kikinzoku

You must be dreaming about the magical compass from the blockbuster fantasy film “The Golden Compass.” The news is now you can possess your dream by turning into reality as a Japanese jeweler has given a real form to this magical compass, which is bathed in gold and is valued at 30-million-yen ($281,400).

Tanaka Kikinzoku uncovered the compass made of 18-carat gold to endorse the film featuring Nicole Kidman and actor Daniel Craig. Measuring 8.3 cms. in diameter, the compass is designed on the lines of one used in the flick. Weighing 31.5 ounces, it took one-long year for seven veteran craftsmen to engrave flimsy letters and numbers on it. Word is around that compass would be exhibited at movie’s Japan premiere later this month. News is jeweler has no plans to put this compass on sale. The story line of the movie resides on an orphan setting off for his journey with a gold magical compass to hoard her best friend. It is an alteration of “The Northern Lights,” the first book in British author Philip Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” fantasy trilogy.
