THOR'S HAMMER FROM "THE DARK WORLD"
23 x 50 x 14 cm
Provenance: Italian private collection
Certificates: Comes with a Certificate of authenticity.
In Norse mythology, Thor is a hammer-wielding god associated with lightning, thunder, storms, strength, the protection of mankind and fertility. One item that never leaves his side is the powerful hammer Mjölnir.
It's used both as a devastating tool for destruction and as a divine instrument to provide blessings.
The Mjölnir, the Thorhammer, has itself become the protagonist of many Marvel films. The indestructible wonder weapon was forged in the core of a dying star and could only be used and lifted by those who proved worthy of it.
This prop hammer comes from Thor 2: The Dark World, the second film in the Thor film series which was released in 2013. It was used personally throughout the movie by Chris Hemsworth, mainly in action scenes.
The head of this hammer is made of dense rubber. It is painted to resemble hardened steel with strong patina. The top is engraved with ancient runes, while the edges feature an intricate Nordic knot pattern. The handle is wrapped in leather-like rubber and has raised decorative silver chevrons that improve the grip. A leather strap in the Nordic design is attached to the pommel.
The hammer is in excellent condition, showing only slight signs of use that occurred during filming.
Only very rarely original Marvel Props reach the open market. So this is great chance to add this wonderful and iconic piece of movie history to your collection.
