J. R. R. Tolkien sure left a legacy like no other author, in the history of science fiction. In fact, his fiction has been described as ‘high fiction.’
Thanks to him, we have the ‘Lord of the Rings’ and many other ultra sci-fi and futuristic novels, movies, and game adaptations. Rivendell is an outpost in Middle Earth, and is home to Elrond. The pretty haven in the midst of darkness was founded in the year 1967 and many of the characters mentioned in Tolkien’s legends lived here.
The hidden refuge of Rivendell has been created by Senior Model Maker, David Tremont and Weta Concept Designer Daniel falconer. You may also stand a chance of being one of the first 300 Rivendell sculpture purchasers who would get individually numbered boxes. In fact, the first 300 orders would also receive a cool “The Road to Rivendell” colour art print (approx 20in x 15in).
The sculpture is so realistic that you might for a minute believe that you are back in the Second Age. It required almost 1,200 hours to create the sculpture and a great deal of attention and creativity had to be invested into the project. In fact, every ornament, tree and brick has been individually conceptualized and designed so that the end product looks as realistic as possible. Perhaps this sculpture could be a great way to introduce youngste4rs to the canon of J.R.R. Tolkien, and initiate them into high fiction.
Rivendell, which is part of the Lord of the Rings story has even been made into a popular movie, as we already know. The sculpture can be ordered for $399 and I must say it is one of those high art pieces that would make any geek scream in ecstasy. You could also take a look at the Lord of the Rings Bobble Heads and Lord of the Rings Swords if you don’t want an entire sculpture of Rivendell.
