- The One Ring beguiles the Lady of the Wood.
- Will Lady Galadriel succumb to its corrupting influence?
- A terrifying yet beautiful image of the Elven Queen.
- Sculpted by Brigitte Wuest, lead sculptor on the The Lord of the Rings trilogy!
The prototype for this astonishing Lord of the Rings Galadriel Dark Queen 1:6 Scale Statue was expertly sculpted at Weta Workshop by Brigitte Wuest, lead sculptor on the The Lord of the Rings
trilogy. Brigitte is very familiar with the Elven Queen, as the very first collectible she sculpted at the Workshop was a 1:4 scale bust of Lady Galadriel. Nearly two decades later, Brigitte has revisited the character, this time sculpting the filmmaker's terrifying vision of Galadriel when tempted by the One Ring, perhaps to succumb to its corrupting influence. Traditional sculpting techniques were used to develop Galadriel's pose and costume through clay. Each individual strand of sculpted fabric was built up over a mini armature of spring steel and aluminum mesh, layer upon painstakingly textured layer. 50 individual strands make up the sculpted garment on the prototype!
The Ring before her and freely offered by Frodo, the Ring beguiles the Lady of the Wood. In the moment this choice hangs between them, Galadriel is transfigured in Frodo's sight - manifest as a dark queen, both beautiful and terrible, her raiment rippling with energy and eyes blazing like black flames, a terrifying vision of what could be. Yet, as quickly as it was unleashed, the vision passes, and once again before Frodo stands the serene Lady of Lórien, kind, gentle, and yet now somehow smaller. The challenge met and her path set, Galadriel is resolved to her fate: to remain herself and go west beyond the shores of Middle- earth, where her kin await her. Measures 15 3/4-inches tall x 12-inches long. NOTE: We reserve the right to limit quantities ordered.
