Thror King under the mountain.This metal that was mined from deep under the mountain, and wrought into the likeness of Thror as only the most skilled Dwarves could work this metal.This was a gift to Bilbo from the Dwarf Lords for his services in recovering their treasure from Smaug!

Is this a painting or is it metall ???? I can`t tell... It`s Great !!!!! :0)
Is it greek or roman inspired ??

1 Terry A Ernest replies: "Hi Henning.. yes it was cast from brass , but I carved it out of hardboard. I had Zuse in the back of my mind, but in a celtic way, it took over a year to finish it... "

I thought you were of Hobbit descent, but you obviously have quite a bit of dwarf blood in there too! 1 Really, really excellent work. As with everything else, you do Tolkien’s ideas great justice.

:-) Terry A Ernest replies: "Well... It`s true on mothers side I`m half hobbit, but my father`s side is a little more interesting. They came from Germany just before the world war Two ...1"

Oh wow, you must do more sculpture sir.

:-) Terry A Ernest replies: "I`d love too, but this is just a one off. The person who cast this for me, did it as a favour ...and the cost of having a sculpture cast is prohibitive ...8"

:-) Terry A Ernest replies: "Thank you Steph ... I carve this one out of hardboard that given to me at work, it was used as packing for floor tiles ..."

:-) Terry A Ernest replies: "We’ll I was lucky enough to use the original to make a mould in fine sand and then it was cast into brass... 1"

Really? Bilbo got an ancient artifact? That is SO COOL!!!!!!

:-) Terry A Ernest replies: "...Bilbo was given gifts from the Dwarfs for services rendered to them, after the battle of the Five Army’s , and this was one them. It has been passed down in our family through the mists of time, when middle earth was still young, on my mothers Hobbits side, from my nanny Ada. There are Dwarven spells that are woven into it ... of which I cannot speak...
Of course there is the other version of it’s making described here ...
But you know you can’t believe everything you read ...ha! 1
