Sauron's Barad-dûr... Made in Lego!

Posted by Grey Sunday, July 10, 2011

Then at last his gaze was held: wall upon wall,
battlement upon battlement, black, immeasurably strong,
mountain of iron, gate of steel,
tower of adamant, he saw it:
Barad-dûr, Fortress of Sauron.
All hope left him.


- The Fellowship of the Ring, page 521

Behold, Barad-dûr, Fortress of Sauron, realized in Lego!


Built by Sauron, the Dark Lord of Mordor, with the power of the One Ring, during the Second Age and taking six hundred years to complete, Barad-dûr was more than the great evil fortress in the fantasy world of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, but is also the original "Dark Tower" in modern literature.

So when sculptor Kevin J. Walter took on the batshit-crazy task on recreating the Barad-dûr in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King with Lego bricks in 2010, one can only imagine the sheer insanity of the ambitious project.

Comprising more than 50,000 pieces of interlocking Lego bricks, and with the assistance of fifteen people from five different countries, Sauron's evil fortress was recreated! Feast yourself upon the great structure of an epic (and evil) proportion.
