Massive Gollum Sculpture Unveiled at Wellington Airport [Video]


----------------

Over the weekend, the Wellington Airport in New Zealand unveiled Weta Workshop’s new creation – a massive, suspended Gollum – in anticipation for the world premiere of ‘The Hobbit’.

Gollum is almost 40 feet long and features him “grabbing for fishes” above travelers’ heads. It took Weta four months to build him — including robotics and actual chainsaws.

Watch the video below for the start-to-finish process!

  1. They should use his head in some hidden camera gag, a guy walks into a big room opens door and there’s a giant gollum head allover the room. I would love to see people reactions for that.
