Pukel-men statue

Recommended Posts

Not that it was a complex paint job but one which supports the lore of LOTR. Behold a pukelmen-statue. So feared were the pukel-men by the orcs that it was not uncommon to see orcs runaway from the very sight of these statues. In fact, to keep orcs outside the pukel-men's territory they would set up these statues at their borders to drive them away.

 

Gondorian's loved them as well as the statues were imbued with the subtle magic of the pukel-men. When an orc drifted too close, these statues would, according to some, whistle and warn against the invaders.

 

In one tale a farmer and his family was given a statue by their friend, who was a pukel-men. After the pukel-men left to visit his dying brother, the farmer and his family were attacked by orcs. For a hero three orcs would be no problem. However, for a farmer three orcs present quite a challenge. The orcs set fire to his house but before the farmer could shoot the orcs with his bow a mysterious pukel-men attack the orcs and stamped out the fire. The orcs ran, the mysterious pukel-men gave chase, and once the dust settled the statue left behind was gone! The next day the farmer found the statue sitting on the corpse of the orcs. The statue's feet were charred.

 

Upon the return of the friendly pukel-men, the one who originally left the statue behind to protect his friends, the farmer discovered that his friends feet were burned in the same places as the statue! Upon questioning his friend the pukel-men replied that this was the price of his magic.
