Lord of the Rings 'The Birth of the Uruk-hai' Medallion No. 5 (Sideshow Weta)
Lord of the Rings 'The Birth of the Uruk-hai' Medallion No. 5 (Sideshow Weta).
The Lord of the Rings Medallions (16 in all) represent the very best in low-relief artistry. The Medallions were originally crafted in New Zealand by the same artisans at Weta Workshop that have worked on all three films in the epic trilogy. Those artisans created a beautiful range of Medallions that capture a moment of what you will see on each film. Presented with an aged bronze patina, along with a Certificate of Authenticity, these medallions measure approximately 6" (diameter) and are all various sized limited editions.
In his quest to amass a secret army and dominion over Rohan, the wizard Saruman bred beneath Orthanc and Isengard, a foul new kind of terror. Quick to mature, strong of limb and will, and unafraid of the light, these new Orcs were the fearsome Uruk-Hai. Saruman's lesser Orc minions, Mordor Orcs from the original line of Orcs twisted by Morgoth into being from the Elves, were charged with raising the new-born Uruk-Hai, and made use of this opportunity to abuse and torment them, until such time as the Uruk-Hai rose against them and fought back. It was a company of Uruk-Hai led by Lurtz, at Amon Hen, that killed Boromir and snatched the Halflings for the desperate run across the plains of Rohan.
