Winner of seventeen Academy Awards, The Lord of the Rings was brought to the big screen by New Line Cinema and directed by Peter Jackson. Weta Workshop was intrinsically involved in the design and physical effects manufacture for all three films.

THE ARGONATH - PILLARS OF THE KINGS

Art Print
Dimensions:
(W x H x L) 59 cm x 29.7 cm x 0.1 cm
Weight: 0 lbs (0 kg)

Mightiest river of Middle-earth, the great Anduin winds its way south along the eastern flank of the Misty Mountains toward the sea. As the Fellowship makes its way down river in their Elven boats they are awed by the sight of the mighty Argonath.

Long ago carved from the rocky hillsides upon either bank, these towering statues of the ancient Kings Elendil and his son Isildur stand with arms raised in warning to travellers from the north. For Aragorn it is a moment long sought, to look upon the carved faces of his kinsmen of old and the glory of ancient Gondor they represent.

The moment has been expertly captured by Gus Hunter: longtime Weta Workshop 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.

There are people of extraordinary talent operating in today's world that have similar skills as the great masters of yesteryear. It just happens to be that the canvas that they paint on is the darkened screen of the cinemas of the world.

Richard Taylor - CEO & Co-founder, Weta Workshop

The external dimensions of the print are 23.2in x 11.7in (590mm x 297mm) and the printed area is 20.9in x 8.9in (530mm x 235mm). 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.

  1. Beautiful and impressive work
    This is a very beautiful printing of such an iconic scene of the trilogy! It always impresses everyone, fans and non-fans, who see it.

    The Pillar of Kings, this art goes beautifully with the Argonath Statues I have by Weta, such a Majestic painting I recommend to get your hands on one.

  3. Blurry print and odd dimensions
    Was super excited for this. It\'s printed on nice paper and was shipped well. However the art is blurry, it looks like it was printed off Google images. Also these dimensions are incredibly difficult to find a frame for. This unfortunately isn\'t worth the price of custom framing..

  4. Don\'t expect an art piece
    It\'s printed on such thin paper that it arrived with creases from the person placing it in the tube. These creases can be seen from feet away when the light hits it even when framed.

  8. Would Call It Beautiful If Only It Was Not Damaged
    I ordered the artwork on the 24th of November along with other items.
    I finally received it in the mail today (Jan 27th) after the item was misplaced/undelivered.
    While I do not care about the delay in any way since there was no urgency and I understand things happen...I was utterly disappointed to see that the art I received had a defect/crease towards the bottom where the \"Lord of The Rings\" text is. On closer examination I noticed it was torn.It was still in the plastic film, but the base was ripped on the print paper.

    It just felt like waking up to find no presents on Christmas, After waiting for over two months, I received a damaged item for the money I spent.

    I had higher expectations from Weta.

  9. I had it professionally framed in black wood with golden edges, which brings out the sunlight in the print. Looks fantastic. My daughter likes it the best in my collection so far. Price seems fair to me.

  11. Majestic
    A stunning piece of art. Truly conveys the majesty of the Argonath. Received very well packaged, nothing was going to damage this print. Two minor quibbles - The title of the print isn't actually on the print, it would look great if it could be added under or to the side of the The Lord of the Rings title at the bottom, and, the artists name isn't evident (not talking about the signature as it is there but oftentimes the signatures aren't legible). Just thought it would be nice to have that included in the info printed on the piece

  13. Truly a gorgeous print.
    I deliberated over buying art prints from Weta and having them sent all the way to me in Canada for a very long time.

    Besides the pricing, which is reasonable (but can be a bit misleading if you’re viewing the site in USD and forgot how much exchange has changed over time - tip for my fellow Canucks - always use NZD on the site to give a close idea of price in CAD, and then do the conversion before you buy to avoid surprises!), and besides the long and potentially damaging trip to Canada, I just wasn't sure if these prints would look as good in person as they do on the site.

    Well, I'm happy to say that after finally treating myself to this and a few other prints this Christmas, that these are very well represented on the website, and simply gorgeous in person! This is a beautiful print, well worth the price; given that many art prints are much more expensive.

    The only problem now is finding a frame for this size print (good luck!) or finding a decent price on custom framing. If you're deliberating over these, just buy and enjoy, framed or not. I’m happy to support Weta and their wonderful artists that bring some of my favourite worlds to life. Thanks Weta!!

  16. Beautiful and Great Quality
    I've had my copy of this art print for a couple of months now, but it still shocks me how fantastic a piece of art this really is! It is guaranteed to fill any spot in your home with a sense of grandeur and nerdy satisfaction … I for one have mine next to my replica of Andúril. It is also superb quality.
