Chris Mueller is a higly respected makeup artist and cosumate sculptor, known for his work on the Creature From the Black Lagoon and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Many will recall the beautifully sculpted detail on Capt. Nemo’s pipe organ aboard the Disney Nautilus. For Battlestar Galactica's pilot "Saga of a Star World" he worked on several aliens in the Casino on Carillon. He worked in collaboration with Craig Reardon (design) and Gunnar Ferdinandsen (mold maker).

This golden helmeted creature was sculpted by Chris Mueller upon a design by Craig Reardon. The birdlike helmet was, according to Craig Reardon, intended as a sort of extraterrestrial's armor. The fierce-looking creature with the horns or perhaps pincers emerging from its face was an original done by Chris Mueller.
