    "Ringwraith" screen-used costume display from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. (New Line Cinema, 2001-2003) The "Witchking of Angmar" was once one of nine great "Lords of Men" who later fell under corrupting influence of the "Dark Lord Sauron". He became an undead "Ringwraith", Sauron's chief servant in his search for "The One Ring". Creating the Ringwraith costumes for The Lord of the Rings trilogy was one of award winning costume designer, Ngila Dickson's greatest challenges. To make the costumes appear formless, ethereal and skeletal, yet achieve lifelike movement, the design team stacked layer upon layer of silks of varying thickness, weave and texture, complete with regal embroidery to signify the de-evolution from High King to miserable servant and slave of Sauron. This incredible display statue was originally created by Richard Taylor and his skilled team of Weta Workshop artists to promote the release of The Fellowship of the Ring throughout 2001. Includes: complete, layered Ringwraith hooded robe filming costume, original leather belting, hero scabbard, and resin and aluminum "Witchking" stunt sword created from original hero molds. Built on a static metal armature in a dramatic pose, this is the only known example of a screen-used Ringwraith costume in private hands. Highly detailed hand and foot resin armor components, pulled from the original hero molds, were created by Weta Workshop to complete the display but were not used for filming. Measuring 70 x 50 in. Originally sold through an official New Line Cinema studio auction in January of 2002. Comes with a Letter of Authenticity signed by President of New Line New Media, Jim Rosenthal. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
