About this creation
Orthanc, der Turm von Isengart

Orthanc (= Gabelhoehe) ist eines der maechtigen Bauwerke aus Mittelerde, dem Schauplatz J.R.R. Tolkiens Fantasyepos Der Herr der Ringe. Der Turm aus pechschwarzem Gestein steht im Zentrum von Isengart und ist der Sitz des Zauberers Saruman. Beschreibungen zufolge ist der ca. 500 Fuss (150 Meter) hohe Turm aus einem nicht von Menschenhand geschaffenen, steinernen Gebilde gehauen worden. Das sich nach oben verjuengende Bauwerk endet in einer von 4 hohen Spitzen gesaeumten Plattform, die zur Beobachtung der Sterne aber auch als Gefaengnis fuer Sarumans Gegner Gandalf genutzt wurde.

Das hier ausgestellte Legomodell wurde anhand einiger Bilder in Anlehnung an die Filmkulisse der von Peter Jackson verfilmten Trilogie gebaut. Ueber einen Zeitraum von insgesamt 1,5 Jahren entstand der 193 cm hohe und gut 15 kg schwere Turm. Es wurden schaetzungsweise 35.000 Steine in einer Bauzeit von ca. 180 Stunden verbaut. An 2 Stellen laesst sich die Aussenmauer oeffnen und gewaehrt einen Blick in die Eingangshalle und Sarumans Studierzimmer. Das Projekt vereint mehrere Zeitabschnitte des Films in sich. Der zeitlose und unzerstoerbare Turm thront ebenso ueber der ueppig gedeihenden Natur vor Sarumans Wechsel auf Saurons Seite wie ueber den beiden Hobbits, die sich nach der Zerstoerung Isengarts in den Ruinen einer Vorratskammer den Bauch voll schlagen und ihre Pfeifen geniessen.

Orthanc, the tower of Isengard

Orthanc (= Mount Fang, cunning mind) is one of the mighty buildings of Middle-Earth the scene of J.R.R. Tolkiens epic fantasy The Lord of the Rings. The tower of pitch black stone rises in the center of Isengard and is the domicile of the wizard Saruman. According to descriptions the 500 feet (150 meter) high tower is hewn out of a not man-made stone formation. The building narrows from the bottom up and ends in a platform edged with 4 high pikes. The platform was used to observe the stars but also as prison for Sarumans opponent Gandalf.

The shown design model of Lego bricks was build on the basis of pics from the film scenery of Peter Jacksons film trilogy. During a period of 1,5 years the tower with a hight of 193 cm and weight of 15 kg was built. It took about 35.000 bricks and approximately 180 hours of building. It is possible to open the outer wall at two points and to look inside at the entrance hall and Sarumans study. The project combines several time segments of the film. The timeless and undestroyable tower tops the rank vegetation before Sarumans takes side with Sauron as well as the two hobbits smoking their pipes and enjoying their meal in the ruins of the pantry.

Best movies ever, best Orthanc ever. Excellent job! It is just about as close as you are ever going to get (unless you talk to the director and get some references, but...). Anyways, great job!

Great job (its better than my version). I like the interior access feature. The only aspect I don't completely like is the shape of the four spikes on top. They do not appear to have the curvature on the inside like the ones in the movie.
