From memory, the fake (right-handed) Infinity Gauntlet existed before Thanos made Etri create the left-handed version that he used with the real Infinity Stones.

Hela next to big fake gauntlet

This gauntlet is obviously sized for Titans, but who was it made for, and why?

    There's no indication it was made for anything other than sitting in the vault/trophy room is there? After all it is fake. May 3, 2019 at 8:18

    @TheLethalCarrot - That sounds like an answer; why don't you turn it into one? :)

    Thanos isn't the only large being in the universe. Further, there's no indication that the fake was meant to be Odin's gauntlet. It's in the trophy room - he probably defeated some monster who had it OR he had it created and felt that it had to be 'larger than life'. May 3, 2019 at 12:06
  • Obviously the real answer is out of universe, they didn't know it was going to be a fake in the earlier Thor film, they only decided to add the crafting bit with Eitrig later. Oct 7, 2019 at 9:45

This Gauntlet was nothing more then a fake. In Ragnarok, we see a model/sculpture of the gauntlet in at the Etri's smith. The gauntlet most likely needed a certain size to properly have the right specifications to withstand the power of the infinity stones. Which explains the size. The gauntlet was simply there as a trophy for Odin and to make everyone believe the gauntlet was in safe hands to prevent fear amongst the asgaurdians.
