Gollum Installation New Zealand Airport

New Zealand's Wellington Airport has a giant Gollum installation. The sculpture is suspended from the roof and is shows Gollum grasping for juicy sweet fishes. The impressive installation was designed by Richard Taylor and Weta's workshop supervisor Rob Gillies. The airport terminal also now welcomes arriving passengers with a sign that says, "The Middle of Middle-earth."

Taylor said in a statement, "We have had a long and wonderful relationship with the Wellington Airport team, who continually focus on presenting an exciting gateway into our city. We are thrilled to once again be creating something with Wellington Airport that will bring delight to the many visitors coming to our fabulous city."
