Labyrinth Easter Egg - Faces

You've probably seen the huge rock shaped like Bowie's face that Jareth appears from to give Hoggle the peach, but did you see the other Bowie shots? In Sarah's bedroom there are photo's of him, (this gets explained in the novel), in the tunnel, when the rung breaks off the ladder, there's a carving of his face in the lower right hand corner of the screen. There are two more, one in the hedge maze and one in the bog, but you can only see these with widescreen.
Also in Sarah's room, there's a statue of Jareth on her dresser to the right of the mirror, again this is easier to see with widescreen, but it's possible to glimpse it on the regular version and the latest release.

"Labyrinth" is about the maturing of Sarah as she makes the transition from fantasy to reality. If you look in her room at the beginning of the movie, you see a photo album with pictures of her dead mother, an actor, in it; Sarah shares her mothers' love of acting. She has engulfed herself in a fantasy world, symbolized by her room (which is her sanctuary) and the things in it, to escape the things in her life that she does not want to accept. Every character in the movie was created from her own imagination, which has grown so strong that she has turned it into reality. In her fantasy, she is the victim (as she feels she is in life as well), and evil is symbolized by Jareth, who she created. Jareth and Sarah both know that Sarah will be the victor in the end, and yet Jareth--who has grown to love Sarah but can't express his devotion without hints of malice--tries to change it. In the end, she comes out a mature, responsible young adult and decides to leave behind her world of fantasy and accept reality--but of course, not completely! :)

There was a point to that- everything in the labyrinth existed in Sarah's room at one point or another. She has a labyrinth game. She has the script to the labyrinth as a play. Hoggle is a bookend. Sir Didymus is a stuffed animal. His loyal steed (Rufus) is her dog Merlin. The fieries are stuffed animals. Ludo is from "Where the Wild Things Are" David Bowie is a little green statue (as well as posters, etc.) The dress and hair in the ball room scene came from the little music thing with the pretty dancing doll. The point was to show that it was her fantasy and reality colliding, and that she had to get things straight to get her brother (Toby) out of the Labyrinth.

The whole point of the Labyrinth is a coming of age film, at the begining of the film she is a child and by the end she is an adult. She has grown up to realise that she has to accept everthing in life and the people that she knows already are the people in her pictures at the end. I don't really think that the end pictures are an egg as it they still part of the story line for the end. Please comment...

Another thing to watch for in the opening sequence in Sarah's room are the main characters appearing in various forms. Ludo is a stuffed animal on her book shelf, Hoggle is a book end, and Sir Didimus is another stuffed animal. A wooden marble labyrinth is there as well. There's a member of the fire gang as, yes, a stuffed animal, and Sarah's dress from the ball scene appears in a music box.

There's also an MC Escher print in her bedroom that looks very much like the room of stairs at the end of the movie.

Actually, there IS a Ludo doll... I'm watching it now, and if you watch the scene where she enters her "room" from the Junkyard (and at the beginning where her father is trying to talk to her from outside her door) you can see the Ludo doll on the shelf just to the side of the door to her room.

Regarding the statue of Jareth in Sarah's bedroom- it is more visible in the scene where Sarah is in her bedroom in the middle of the film, where she meets the pack goblin. Sarah sits at her vanity with all of her "junk" surrounding her and to the right of her mirror you can see a blue figure- Jareth. This is visible without the wide screen version.

If you look closely in Sara's room, you'll notice Jareth is based off of two people. His outfit is from the figurine on her desk, but you'll see there are pictures of Sara's mother (an actress) and the co-star she left Sara's father for. Who is this co-star? None other than David Bowie himself.

Yes, indeed the finale of Labyrinth does copy MC Esher, the Print is entitled "Realativity" and the stairs going into the walls are proof positive of this.

Looking at the widescreen version, LUDO definately is a stuffed animal. Just as she enters her fake room in the junkyard, on the left side of the screen on the shelf is a stuffed toy Ludo. Also, right above him is "Slashing Machine" which is the same as the Cleaners in that tunnel that almost eats Sarah and Hoggle!

Also, there is a 'Where the Wild Things Are' book on her dresser or shelf or something when they pan around the room. Ludo's character...

Hmm, well that explains how Jareth is able to see everything through his crystals. Instead of "If only walls could speak" it's more like "if only walls could show", and with a representation of him in almost every scene, they can.

There IS a Ludo doll next to the doorway of Sarah's room. Whenever she's sitting at the mirror in the beginning and her father comes to her door, the camera switches to a view of the door and there is the Ludo doll. Where the Wild Things Are represents the goblins.

There isn't a stuffed animal of Ludo as far as I know, but according to that popular site that talks about all the shtuff in movies (you know the one) and various other sources, Ludo is represented by Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are" for that is where they got the idea for his character.
