About This Scaled Replica
Originating from the fertile and stunningly creative mind of Frank Frazetta in 1973, the Death Dealer fantasy painting depicts this now famous icon as a menacing armor laden warrior with horned helmet sitting atop a fierce steed while holding a stunning, bloody axe and shield.
He is eventually identified through stories, this painting inspired as Gath of Baal- a tribeless barbarian dealing death to all that oppose him. To help him in his battles one of Gath's love interests gives him the menacing helmet which was possessed by the god of death. The helmet gives him godlike power, but at a price.
So influential and important was this painting it was officially adopted by the USMC Helicopter Squadron VMM 164 and the III Corps of the US Army as their mascot.
Museum Replicas is proud to work with the Frazetta Art Museum to bring this icon of fantasy to life.
This magnificent axe is hand forged by the master smiths at Windlass Steelcrafts of high carbon steel with a shaft custom made of genuine hardwoods. It is then carefully hand finished with an antique look. Truly the axe of a death dealer. Working closely with the Frazetta Art Museum this massive axe has come to life like never before and includes a wall display plaque.
