John Rhys-Davies Signed Gimli Display

"Bring your pretty face to my axe!"

 

This dramatic display consists of a picture of brave Gimli the dwarf wielding his axe, together with the signature of John Rhys-Davies. John of course also provided the voice for Treebeard in the trilogy.  He has signed the index card in gold - matching the display mat perfectly!  John spent up to 5 hours a day putting on makeup for the role of Gimli in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It was discovered early on that he was allergic to the prosthetics, so he could only put them on and work about every third day. The first week, it burned off the skin under his eyes. Ironically, despite playing a dwarf he is actually taller than Lord of the Rings co-stars Viggo Mortensen, Orlando Bloom, and Ian McKellen!

 

Short, stocky, with long brown hair and a long brown beard, Gimli attended Elrond's Council in Rivendell and was chosen to represent the Dwarves in the Fellowship. He aided Gandalf in leading the company through Moria and became the first dwarf to enter Lorien since Durin's Day. He was held in awe by the beauty of the Lady Galadriel. He became very close friends with Legolas, and journeyed throughout Middle Earth with him after the War of the Ring - the banter between the pair provides some light-hearted moments in the depths of the battle throughout the trilogy.
