TAURIEL OF THE WOODLAND REALM - Weta Model Statue 1/6 Lord of the Rings Hobbit. Brand New & In Original Box. Captain of the Kings guards, Tauriel was a Silvan Elf of the Woodland Realm. Though considered young among her kind, with but a few centuries of experience, Tauriel was spirited and bright. Her prowess as a warrior saw her lead hunting parties into the glowering dark of Mirkwood to burn out infestations of spiders and other foul things that now haunted the once fair forest.
Tauriels perception of character was as sharp as her eyes, and when she and her hunters apprehended the Company of Thorin straying in the blackened woods, she was quick to see in young Dwarf Kili a kindred soul that transcended the enmity of their races. Despite the hostility with which her king treated the Dwarf captives, Tauriel looked favourably upon Kili, eventually defying orders to follow her own heart and track him when the Dwarves escaped Thranduils dungeons. CREATING TAURIEL OF THE WOODLAND REALM. As a character who was specifically created for. Motion picture trilogy, Tauriel presented a unique challenge to Weta Workshops Design Studio.
Designers sought to strike a balance between fierce huntress and feminine Elf through weapons and costume. Weta Workshop designer Paul Tobin matched Tauriels fighting strength to that of Legolas with a signature set of daggers. For wardrobe, costume designer Lesley Burkes Harding created a sense of continuity with Arwens riding outfit in. The Lord of the Rings. Rather than Elven silks beneath the travelling cloak, Tauriel wore a deerskin jacket and leather cuirass befitting the Captain of Thranduils Guard.The leather armour was constructed by Weta Workshops Cathy Tree Harris, with leaf detailing by Kelly Marie and Daniel Falconer. Capturing all this fine detail, from dual daggers to decorated armour, was sculptor Gary Hunt no stranger to Middle-earth, having worked on both. Using the original screen-used daggers and costume as reference, Gary worked digitally in Zbrush to bring Tauriel to life.
