It contains not only the lay of the land, but also detailed instructions. Some clear as day, some concealed.
Designed and drawn by Daniel Reeve of the 3Foot7 art Department who created the original prop for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Our authentic prop replicas and collectibles are created by the very same artists who have worked on the three films, so effectively they come straight from Middle-earth.
Weta's map has been made from a scan of the original and printed in Middle-earth (New Zealand) on the finest Italian Marina Conchiglia parchment paper.
Thorin's Map - Parchment Art Print is a treat to behold and the die-cut edges add to the feeling of authenticity.
The famous Moon Runes that play an important part in the story have been printed in a layer of high gloss varnish on the otherwise matt surface.
This is almost impossible to see in the product photographs and even to the naked eye it can be hard to spot, but in the right light they're visible and legible.
If you read Dwarven runes, of course.
Thorin's Map is also available as a high end Prop Replica.
