Created by the artists at Weta Workshop in New Zealand, under the direction of multi-Academy Award-winner Richard Taylor, this prop was part of a collection issued to United Cutlery for reference when producing a replica version for fans.
Constructed from fibreglass, the helmet is painted olive green and features a raised flowing pattern reminiscent of Tengwar, the Elvish writing system, highlighted in gold-coloured paint. It has a tall, curved, bladed crest, with nose and cheek guards. Embossed onto the nose guard is the Elvish rune "GG", representing the Elven commander Gil-galad. It is dressed with dark grey and black paint to appear well worn.
The helmet remains in very good condition with a small crack in the corner of the right eye slit, a chip at the nape of the neck and some wear to the paint. A length of Velcro inside indicates where a liner would have been attached during production. Also included is a detailed certificate of authenticity from the licensee and original shipping labels. Dimensions: 38 cm x 41 cm x 19 cm (15" x 16" x 7 1/2")
