The One Ring Sculpture
Jens and Thorkild Hansen wrote to us with details on the creation of a One Ring sculpture on permanent display at the World of Wearable Arts Complex in Nelson, New Zealand. The 2kg, 6 inch in diameter scale replica of the One Ring was turned from steel, hand polished and richly plated with 5 microns of 18ct gold. The approx. 1ft square cube weighs 42kg and was hewn from an 8 tonne greenstone boulder that had been heli-lifted from Awaroa Point in South Westland. The ring sits atop a massive pounamu river cobble which came from the headwaters of the Arahua river. [See this Link for More]"
