As the armies of Rohan and Gondor mass before the Black Gate, the Dark Lord Sauron sends forth his vassal to address his enemies.
Once a man of noble lineage, the being riding out is now but a puppet of flesh for the Great Eye of Mordor: a shell in human form, his own soul subsumed by the indomitable will of the Dark Lord. His own name long forgotten, the Lieutenant of Barad-dur is known now as the Mouth of Sauron, a title both fitting and descriptive, for his enlarged maw is riven and blackened by the evil he speaks: a cruel gash in a masked face, devoid of other features.
Brandishing the Mithril shirt worn by Frodo, the messenger of Mordor taunts Aragorn and his allies, wielding lies of the hobbit’s torture and death like a blade to cut their fragile hope to shreds.
Our authentic prop replicas and collectibles are created by the very same artists who have worked on the three films, so effectively they come straight from Middle-earth.
Cut from the initial release, the Mouth of Sauron returned for the Extended Edition of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Weta Workshop sculptor Sam Gao was tasked with immortalising the character in a collectible version.
Sculpted from clay, its pose was refined with Weta co-founder Richard Taylor, concept designer Daniel Falconer, and sculptor Daniel Cockersell. Taken from the original designs by Weta Workshop concept artist Warren Mahy and the 3Foot6 art department, the final statue is as close as you can get to its terrifying on-screen counterpart.
The Mouth of Sauron on Steed has been recreated here in 1:6 scale polystone.
Please note: this statue was designed and prototyped here in the Workshop. Images show a pre-production prototype. Each statue is painted by hand and slight variations will occur.
