Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring

Lot # 509 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Second Age Elven Lhang Sword

Stock #102835

A Second Age Elven Lhang sword from Peter Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy epic The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The Elven army carried swords during the film's prologue, in which the Last Alliance of Elves and Men fought against the Dark Lord Sauron (Sala Baker) and his forces at the foot of Mount Doom. The Elves of Lothlorien also carried the distinctive long-handled blades at the Battle of Helm's Deep.

Constructed by Weta Workshop, world renowned for their achievements in designing and constructing props that were faithful to Tolkien's writing, the sword is made from dense urethane over a metal core. The recurve shape is reminiscent of the Japanese nagamaki and Chinese podao weapons. The handle is detailed with a brass-coloured leaf wrap that spirals down to the base of the grip. The blade is decorated to resemble metal.

This piece was gifted to executives at Sideshow Toys, who visited the set in 2002. As Sideshow Toys was licenced to distribute collectibles for the Lord of the Rings films, the executives were allowed to choose mementos from the set. These select props were branded with a unique code and note of ownership. This particular item has been etched with the text: "Prologue Elven Sword Sideshow Toy/12 June 02/0012 W."
