See the construction of Dr Parnassus’s wagon


The most impressive design element of Terry Gilliam’s picture The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus is the Imaginarium wagon itself. In the film it is where the main characters live, it is their means of transport, and also it is where they perform. Below is a series of construction photos of the wagon. It was required to be ready for a test shoot day on Thursday 6 December 2007. Click on the images for more detail.
