"When Peter Jackson began work on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, he approached Alan Lee to create much of the conceptual art for it. Lee's creative leadership made a cinematic vision of Middle-earth that was full of wonder, and yet, to the fans of the written word, so intensely familiar that it felt like a homecoming. Through a unique arrangement with Peter Jackson, it is now possible to own a piece of cinematic history. Sideshow / Weta Collectibles is proud to offer a Limited Edition Rivendell Lithograph & Film Strip Collectible. This piece features the actual conceptual art of Rivendell created by Alan Lee. The original watercolor has been lovingly reproduced as an offset lithograph, printed on archival paper, and includes the original signatures of the three creative forces behind the making of The Lord of the Rings film trilogy: director Peter Jackson, two-time Academy Award(R) winner Richard Taylor, and illustrator Alan Lee.
Included in this Fine Art Collectible is a piece of the actual film strip of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The strip was cut from a reel donated by Peter Jackson from his personal collection. These film strips are not a reproduction. Each is an actual, unique, and individual Cinema Scope negative print taken from a single film reel that features Rivendell scenes. A special lighting mechanism is included which allows the film strip to be illuminated at the touch of a button. There is also a specially engraved brass plaque identifying the origin of the piece.
This unique Limited Edition, hand signed lithograph and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring film strip are displayed with a finely woven linen matte and finished with a museum quality antiqued frame. The finished piece measures an impressive 29" W x 29" H and will make a handsome addition to anyone's art collection. No serious collector will want to miss out on this truly unique offer!
The lighting mechanism for the filmstrip comes with a battery. The mechanism is easily accessible for battery replacement."
