The Hobbit Prop Replica The Mirkwood Gaol Key
- Additional information
Taken by the Elves and unwilling to confess the true reason for his trespass to King Thranduil, Thorin Oakenshield, and his Dwarf companions are thrown in the Elvenking’s dungeons to rot. A hundred years is nothing in the life of an Elf, while to the Dwarves just a few days’ delay might cost them their quest.
How will they escape? The Mirkwood Gaol Key was designed by John Howe and created for the film by the artists at the 3Foot7 Art Department in Wellington, New Zealand.
This prop replica has been cast from moulds of the original prop. It is cast in metal (Zinc Alloy) and comes on a stand made of polyurethane.
This is clearly a key of significance, firmly backed up by its heft and the attention to detail. The Mirkwood Gaol Key is an open edition piece.
Please note: images are of pre-production prototype. Each set is painted by hand and variations will occur.
Weta Workshop’s authentic prop replicas are made by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies, using the same techniques and materials. We treat our prop replicas with the same level of care, quality and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.
