El personaje representado en esta pieza es un Uruk-Hai, uno de los miebros de la raza de orcos creada por Saruman el Blanco, los cuales se caracterizaban por ser más grandes y fuertes que los orcos de Mordor, y eran capaces de recorrer grandes distancias aún bajo la luz del sol, capacidad que no poseían los orcos comunes, los cuales se veían disminuídos ante la presencia del mismo.
El diseño de estás máscaras está inspirado en una máscara de ent que realicé con anterioridad, cuyos rasgos resultaron ser demasiado duros y feroces, por lo que era más fácil decir que había hecho a un ucorno en lugar de un ent, esa es la razón por la me decidí a que la base del molde sería de mayor utilidad para representar a un orco.
Another of the masks made for the exhibition Faces of Middle-earth, sponsored by the Tolkiendili Society of Mexico A. C. , on the 50th anniversary of the publication of The Lord of the Rings . The character depicted in this piece is an Uruk -Hai , one of the members breed of orcs created by Saruman the White , which were characterized by being larger and stronger than the orcs of Mordor, and were able to travel long distances even under sunlight, which ability the common orcs had not, which looked to her undiminished presence.
The design of these masks is inspired in an ent mask I made earlier, whose features were found to be too hard and fierce, so it was easier for me to say I had made a huorn instead of an ent, that is why I decided the mold base would be most useful to represent an orc .
The piece is another mask - helmet that covers most of the head and face of the wearer. The technique used for its realization is again cartonería, applying acrylic paint via airbrush. The colors tend toward black, with a few green and red contrasts. Nose and ears are exaggerated to show the high proportion auditory and olfactory ability that had these creatures, while the eyes are almost oblique to give them less humanity.
