Far beneath the jagged peak of Erebor, Dwarf miners followed seams of shimmering gold and clusters of fine gems, chipping their way ever deeper into the mountain's roots. Here dwelt Thror, mightiest of Dwarf kings, and his people, the children of Durin. No richer bounty had any realm in Middle-earth than Thror's kingdom under the Lonely Mountain.
Enraptured by its wealth the Dwarves tunnelled hungrily, carving vast galleries, yawning chasms, sweeping bridges and arched passages from its green rock. And ever as deep they dug, yet more wealth their picks and hammers unearthed.
Yet as brightly as the gems sparkled, and with as much fire as the gold they mined glowed, the greatest treasure of Erebor gleamed peerless above all others. The Arkenstone, the Dwarves named it, and within it swirled the echo of creation, a leftover relic of an age long past, when the world was still unformed, not meant for mortal eyes. In its finding Thror saw his rule divinely ordained, setting it above his throne of stone for all to witness and kneel before.
Expertly sculpted by Gary Hunt, a member of the original Lord of the Rings crew, Dwarf Miner is our most intricately detailed Miniature Figure to date. The Longbeard hangs suspended in time, moments away from uncovering the heart of the Mountain.
