Kabe's Hand
This is the original left hand for Kabe, the rat-like creature from the memorable Star Wars cantina scene. Kabe's hands even get some air time reaching for a drink from the bartender shortly after a very stunned Luke Skywalker walks into the cantina. The hand is made of a combination of parts including latex for the skin, artificial hair covering most of the hands, and hard finger nails. The glove fits a small hand compared to most costume gloves made for the Star Wars films. Kabe was one of the original characters from the cantina scenes shot in England during principal photography before much of the cantina scene was reshot in Los Angeles.
