Gwaith-i-Phethain translates Dwalin’s runes!

September 9, 2012 at 6:30 am by Demosthenes  - 

The folks at Gwaith-i-Phethain, The Fellowship of the Word-smiths, have translated the runes tattooed across Dwalin’s hands that we discovered in the most recent photos released from the Hobbit movies. If you haven’t seen it already, it’s this one (potential spoiler warning).

G-i-P tells us that the runes are in the mode Angerthas Moria, and read: Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu! ‘Axes of the Dwarves! The Dwarves are upon you’ (Baruk Khazâd – right hand, Khazâd ai-mênu – left hand). Highlight to read the hidden text!

    He looks so ridiculous.

  2. Scott Hueter says:

    something about miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls? LOL!

  3. After “The Hobbit” movie many young Tolkien fans will want to have Dwarvish tattoos 😉 And the Tolkien never wrote about any tattoo on the skin of the Free Peoples of Middle-earth! 🙂

    Right. Tolkein’s descriptions of the dwarve’s tats was always one of my favorite parts of the book.

    Funny. I posted a comment yesterday, but today there are 0 comments. I guess anything that doesn’t toe the party line and kiss PJs arse isn’t acceptable.
