Shagrat by John Howe.

Shagrat was the Uruk commanding the Tower of Cirith Ungol in the Ephel Dúath, who captured Frodo Baggins during the War of the Ring. He survived the battle that ensued the escape of the hobbits, and took the belongings - Elf cloak, Dwarf shirt, blade of the Downfallen West - to Barad-dûr, which were later presented by the Mouth of Sauron as supposed proof of Frodo's continued imprisonment. According to a later note, Sauron killed Shagrat on the 17th of March, 3019.
