You hate orcs. They're violent, cruel and evil creatures that have given your family much pain and grief. The next time an orc tribe tries to raid your farm, you've set up a trap for them. You manage to ensnare their scout, which you kill in revenge and as a warning to his friends.

With careful precision you prepare the head and leave it hanging on the edge of your property. Maybe the next orc will think twice before threatening you.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Orc Shrunken Head is a ghastly latex accessory designed to look like the shrunken head of an orcish foe. Made from 100% natural latex and synthetic hair, this head adornment can be hung from a belt or staff using its long black hair. It is sure to create fear in the hearts of your enemies.

The Orc Shrunken Head is 12cm tall and 8cm wide with a broad nose and pointed, gnarled ears. Sculpted and handpainted details make it appear as if the head had been cut off, de-boned and preserved through a drying process. A sculpted latex bone has been set through the trophy's nose and the lips have been pierced with beaded strings for decoration. The Shrunken head is green-coloured with shaded creases and wrinkles. It can be carefully dry-brushed or customized using Epic Effects Make-Up.

HISTORY

  • Remains of the deceased were collected to demonstrate dominance or to commemorate
  • Earliest references to orcs are found in Old English and Anglo-Saxon sources, such as in Beowulf and in 16th century Italian folktales
