Plans to install the ‘Eye of Sauron,’ atop a skyscraper in Moscow have been canceled after complaints from church leaders.
On Thursday, the latest “Hobbit” movie is scheduled to premiere in Russia — and it was scheduled to be accompanied by a very special light installation. A company called Svechenie created an ‘Eye of Sauron,’ which they planned to install on top of a skyscraper in the IQ-quarter of Moscow’s International Business Center, according to Russian broadcaster RT and the Russian edition of Hollywood Reporter.
The company announced in a press release that the project will not go ahead. “The project has no religious or political overtone. We want to bring a sincere apology for the situation,” it said in a press release.
