After the Downfall of Númenór, Elendil formed an alliance with Gil-galad, the Last Alliance of Elves and Men. They marched on Barad-dûr where Sauron was defeated. Gil-galad, however, like Elendil, met his death in that war after a 3,514 year reign.
You will have seen Gil-galad and his shield in the prologue of The Lord Of The Rings - The Fellowship Of The Ring. Weta has previously produced a bust of Gil-galad.
This is an exact miniature version of the actual prop Weta made for The Lord Of The Rings, made by the same artists and craftsmen who made the original.
Made from metal, these shields can be worn as a badge or be displayed on the stand.
A note on dimensions: The above sizes are of the shield on its base. The actual shield is about 10.5 cm high and 4.5 cm wide. The box it comes in is 15 x 8 x 5 cm.

Picked up the trio set at SDCC 2010 and was very pleased with the versatility of using this on display or as jewelry-any bigger and it would be too heavy to wear. My second favorite design of the three, despite the pointy design getting me stopped by airport security. :) Hide.

I love these shields and how they show off the races of Middle-Earth. Just amazing detail and for the price you can't beat it. Another great thing is how they totally match up with the old weapons sets. Hide.

very very nice little shields, hope to see more of them. my only gripe is that for the LE they are only numbered on the box and not the base or shield itself Hide.
