Éowyn and the Nazgûl™ is the second sculpture in our range of The Art of John Howe.

The sculpture is based on John's original artwork originally done for the 1991 Tolkien Calendar.

This is a painting John has long wanted to see become a sculpture. Fair but fierce, Éowyn's rage and terror is clear to see as she prepares to slay the fell-beast and its rider, the Lord of the Nazgûl.

The original painting was stolen in 1997 from the Médiathèque of Sedan in France, along with "Gandalf the Grey" and "the Uruk-hai". Like them, it was never recovered.

This is a rare opportunity to own this iconic and dynamic piece.

The Art of John Howe - Sculptures from Middle-earth™ is a series of sculptures from John's iconic representations of Tolkien's worlds, sculpted by Weta sculptors Daniel Cockersell, Brigitte Wuest and Eden Small under the creative guidance of John Howe and Richard Taylor.

This statue is cast in polystone resin, a material that allows intricate detail. It's the same material we cast most of our collectible statues and busts. For fine art collectors, Éowyn and the Nazgûl™ is also available in Bronze.

The statue sits on a black marbled polystone base. The bases are cast using a process that creates a unique marbling effect for each individual piece.

Your statue will be shipped from your nearest warehouse in either the US, UK or New Zealand.

Please note our earlier special offer of a complimentary hard cover book has now expired.

I finally received my Nazgul sculpture and it looks great!
Quick delivery once the item was in stock. The packaging was good and although the box is bulky, it is not too heavy. Maybe around 10kg.

The sculpture comes in three pieces. Base, beast and Eowyn. All can be assembled quickly and looks like one piece when put together.

What I love about this sculpture is not only it's dynamic pose but especially the realism of the fake bronze. It looks absolutely like metal (including some fake oxidation that appears as a green layer).

Thanks Weta. Excellent job and product! Hide.

I am so happy to be one of the few that will own this piece! Edition #46 to be exact, which is beautifully stamped on a tin plate located on the bottom of the base. This is by far the favorite of my personal collection. It's absolutely stunning, I can't help but stare every time I pass by it. The detail is amazing and the fluidity of the beasts movement is just plain stunning. I only wish the book that came with could have been signed by Mr. Howe himself as well as the gifted Weta artists. Hide.
