The Shawshank Redemption is a 1994 American drama film written and directed by Frank Darabont and starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman. Adapted from the Stephen King novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, the film tells the story of Andy Dufresne, a banker who is sentenced to life in Shawshank State Prison for the murder of his wife and her lover despite his claims of innocence. During his time at the prison, he befriends a fellow inmate, Ellis Boyd "Red" Redding, and finds himself protected by the guards after the warden begins using him in his money laundering operation.

The Shawshank Redemption is in my top 5 of my favourite films of all time. I couldn't miss the opportunity on collecting some of the most noticeable props from the movie. I sadly have not participating much in this collection. The only thing I have done is the hammer cutout in the bible. It required a lot of patience to do this, but I am really happy with the result. Some of the props are already existing but they are quite rare to find (like the harmonica box). I have managed to get a custom rock hammer made by "ssdesigner" and some paper props from "Kurtyboy".
