The Dominion Post is reporting that a new Hobbit-themed sculpture is set to be unveiled at Wellington Airport on Tuesday. Naturally, they’re being all coy about what it’s going to be but apparently the existing Gollum-chasing-fish artwork will remain.
Thanks to Ringer TKAthens for letting us know!
Wellington Airport spokesman Greg Thomas has confirmed a second “large, majestic” Hobbit sculpture, created at Weta Workshop in Miramar, would be unveiled inside the terminal on Tuesday morning.
The airport already has a large sculpture of Hobbit-character Gollum chasing fish, which hangs above the food court. The new sculpture would not replace it, Thomas said.
He would not comment on what the sculpture would be and, when asked specifically if it would be the dragon Smaug, would not say.
