LOTR Phial of Galadriel Papercraft

LOTR Phial of Galadriel Papercraft


Twenty three years before Peter Jackson created his version, Rankin/Bass produced their 1980 made-for-televison, animated version of Tolkien's Return of the King. This papercraft is my rendition of the "Phial of Galadriel" as it appears in the Rankin/Bass version of the story. The Phial of Galadriel is a small bottle which the Elf queen Galadriel gives to the Hobbit Frodo Baggins to assist him in his quest. The phial is capable of magically emitting a bright star-like light. Galadriel describes the phial as "a light for you in dark places, when all other lights go out."

The Phial of Galadriel (aka Star-glass) is an item from J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth legendarium, it was given to Frodo Baggins by Galadriel (The Lady of the Wood) before they left Lorien. This Phial of Galadriel papercraft is not based on the Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings film, but is based on a 1980's animated TV movie by Rankin/Bass.
