Smaug the Golden is the first sculpture in John Howe's and Weta's range of
sculptures from Middle-earth. The sculpture is based on John's original artwork
created in 1990. It was first published on the cover of the paperback edition
of The Hobbit by Grafton Books in 1991.
Having adorned the cover of The Hobbit, it is an instantly recognisable image to old and young Tolkien fans alike.
Smaug – the great dragon, at one with his cache and jealously guarding it against the world around him. This statue is cast in resin, a material that allows intricate detail, and painted as Faux Bronze.
The statue sits on a black marbled polystone base. The polystone bases are cast using a process that creates a unique marbling effect for each individual piece.
Dimensions (H x W x D): 13" x 17.4" x 17.4" / 33 cm x 44.3 cm x 44.3 cm
