"...like a globe with a thousand facets; it shone like silver in the firelight, like water in the sun, like snow under the stars, like rain upon the Moon!"
That is the Arkenstone, the treasure he seeks!
Way To Go Uncle! You are my Hero!
But is Thorin Hero or Villlian… perhaps, a Tragic Hero?
From Hero To Villian Then BACK Again!
4th wall: The Arkenstone was a great stone. An ancestor or Thorin’s, Thrain I, found the rough stone at the roots of the Lonely Mountain. The Dwarves cut the stone into a gem that reflected light in many colors.
Thorin was revised and I added new pictures on August 22, 2012. So Thorin no longer is pictured sitting on my stovetop. He sits on a LEGO canister now!
Thank you so much. Your comment is greatly appreciated! It's just a simple weapon, sorta axe-like 'cuz he is a dwarf and of mining heritage... that was the idea anyway. I thought about adding some greebles to it, but opted for no ornamentation thinking it might work better without any?! :)
