What the Hobbit Bilbo Baggins may lack in stature he more than makes up for in cunning, courage, wit and resource.
Not completely fazed by the aggressive suspicion he encounters from the creature Gollum, he engages in a game of riddles, where the stakes are the highest imaginable, for Bilbo as well as the wretched Gollum who's just lost his most Precious possession.
This pivotal event in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey that has repercussions for so much of the mythos of Middle-earth has been expertly captured by Gus Hunter - veteran Weta conceptual designer who started on The Lord Of The Rings trilogy alongside Jeremy Bennett and was an early adopter of the digital painting techniques Weta uses today. Read more about Gus in our Meet the Crew interview.
Riddles in the Dark joins our exclusive suite of Middle-earth art prints by Weta artists:
The external dimensions of the print are 23.2 in x 11.7 in (590 mm x297 mm) and the printed area is 20.9 in x 8.9 in (530 mm x 235 mm). A lovely cinematic format. Exactly the same size as the previously released prints.
It's printed on good quality 170 gsm satin paper and ships rolled up in a VERY sturdy poster tube. It will arrive in pristine condition, ready to be framed and hung, pride of place, in your home.

I was lucky enough to receive this wonderful art print as a Christmas gift :) It's my favourite Tolkien scene and this image is the perfect representation of my love for both the films and Tolkien's work. I have framed the print and it's now the centrepiece of my bedroom! So, thank you WETA! :) Hide.
