Though as an immortal Elf she was many centuries his senior, Arwen's heart belonged to Aragorn, a mortal man and ward of Elrond who dwelt in Rivendell under the tutelage of the Elves and was fated to some day reclaim the lost throne of Gondor.
This love was no easy thing to bear in the time of the War of the Ring, when the time of the Elves was waning and her people were leaving Middle-earth for the Undying Lands. As a mortal, that way to the uttermost west was barred to Aragorn, leaving Arwen to choose between her family and people, and the man she loved.
For the sake of her affection, Arwen chose a mortal life, and in so doing bound her own life to the fate of the Ring. She would wed Aragorn as a mortal woman in the event of his unlikely triumph, or fade into darkness beneath the shadow of Sauron's dominion.
Our authentic prop replicas and collectibles are designed by the very same artists who have worked on the three films, so effectively they come straight from Middle-earth.
Wētā Workshop's legacy of finely crafted miniature figures from Middle-earth continues with the character who stole Aragorn's heart. Arwen is an Open Edition piece who partners perfectly with our Strider miniature figure.
It takes 400-500 hours to design, sculpt, model make, mold, and paint the prototype for each new piece. Whether it be a prop replica, beautiful environment or iconic character, we treat our collectibles with the same level of care and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.
Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Each sculpture is hand painted and minor variations will occur.
