Smaug™ the Golden is the first sculpture in John Howe's and Weta's range of sculptures from Middle-earth™. The sculpture is based on John's original artwork created in 1990. It was first published on the cover of the paperback edition of The Hobbit by Grafton Books in 1991.

Having adorned the cover of The Hobbit, it is an instantly recognisable image to old and young Tolkien fans alike.

Smaug - the great dragon, at one with his cache and jealously guarding it against the world around him.

The Art of John Howe - Sculptures from Middle-earth™ is a series of sculptures from John's iconic representations of Tolkien's worlds, sculpted by Weta sculptors Daniel Cockersell, Brigitte Wuest and Eden Small under the creative guidance of John Howe and Richard Taylor.

The statue sits on a natural wood base.

The price for this statue is currently US$5,900. Other currencies are listed for reference.
