'Mordor' in Moscow? 'Eye of Sauron' to Appear in Russian Capital

A special art installation named 'Eye of Sauron' is rumoured to appear in the skies over Moscow on Thursday night, December 11, timed to 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' world premiere.

      As The Hollywood Reporter Russia reports, it was an idea of Russian fans of the British fiction novelist J. R. R. Tolkien to celebrate the final part of the mighty fantasy franchise on a grand. Together with Russian art group Svechenie ("Luminescence") they have been working on the project for several months.

      The light installation is rumoured to be sited on top of the “IQ-quarter” complex in the Moscow International Business Centre "Moscow-City". It is supposed to be a video projection looking like a huge eye in flames, the sinister symbol of evil and power which appears in fantasy books by JRR Tolkien and then in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy based on the books.

      However, it is still not quite clear whether the project is real, as there is no much information and the rumours are discrepant. It seems that the only option we have is to wait for December 11 and see it with our own eyes. The project's authors promise to show their grand Eye installation in the period between 6 PM December 11 and 3 AM December 12, Moscow time.

      The grand opening for the Jackson's final film in the Hobbit trilogy will take place in New Zealand on Thursday.
