One of the Púkel-men in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Púkel-men referred to the statues lining the Stair of the Hold, which led to Dunharrow.


They were carved sometime in the early Second Age by the Men of the White Mountains who were possibly relatives of the Drúedain, and were thought to resemble them in likeness.[1] By the time of the War of the Ring, the statues had largely eroded, leaving many with only eye-sockets remaining.[2]
