On the morning of his one-hundred and eleventh birthday, the eccentric master of Bag End huddles amid a jumble of paper and books, his quill a blur as he scratches at his memoir.
Miraculously hale for one of his advanced years, Bilbo Baggins is no ordinary Hobbit. A small person he might be, but his has been as long and storied life, and he pursues the self-appointed duty to record it in every detail with a furious fervour.
It is for Bilbo’s young cousin Frodo, and other Hobbits like him, that he is compelled to write. Age creeps upon Bilbo, little by little, and that Tookishness in his blood stirs wistful thoughts of far off mountains and friends long gone. His mind is made up; plans are set. Now all he needs is time to finish what he has begun, if those unwanted guests would stop ringing the bell!
BILBO BAGGINS AT HIS DESK
A story is only as good as the one who tells it. Here the adventurous Hobbit scrawls out his tales in the comfort of his own home, free to let his mind wander whilst safe and warm. Daniel Cockersell honours Sir Ian Holm by capturing the moment that Bilbo starts writing the story that will be loved by all.
"With the sad passing of Sir Ian Holm, this piece became a beautiful homage to a beloved actor. We were in the early stages of the sculpt when we received the news and it took on a more personal meaning for everyone involved."

The Lord of the Rings Classic Series:
To celebrate the upcoming 20th anniversary of The Lord of the Rings, the team at Wētā Workshop have created a special line of polystone statues featuring Middle-earth’s major characters in their signature pose and clothing. The Classic Series is Open Edition and has been tailor made to fit beautifully on your shelf.
It takes 400-500 hours to design, sculpt, model make, mold, and paint the prototype for each new Middle-earth piece. Whether it be a prop replica, beautiful environment or iconic character, we treat our collectibles with the same level of care and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.
Winner of seventeen Academy Awards, The Lord of the Rings was brought to the big screen by New Line Cinema and directed by Peter Jackson. Wētā Workshop was intrinsically involved in the design and physical effects manufacture for all three films.
