Weta Installs Giant Gollum Statue at Wellington Airport

Here's a few photos of a giant Gollum statue that was set up and being displayed at New Zealand's Wellington Airport. I'm a huge fan of this Middle Earth franchise, and this thing is awesome!

Rob Gillies and Sarah Morris. Richard made a short speech to thank the team that made the incredibly realistic sculpture – a testament not only to their talent and hard work, but also to the technology and skills Weta has developed. He also thanked the “excellent” team at Wellington Airport, who have been a pleasure to work with in creating something that would bring delight to Wellington’s visitors. Airport CEO Steve Sanderson said the airport was proud to work with Weta and have such a magnificent sculpture on display. “Everyone will be amazed when they enter the terminal."

Maybe one day I'll make it out to New Zealand to see this in person!
