When the Thrush Knocks

When the Thrush Knocks

“Stand by the grey stone when the thrush knocks, and the setting sun with the last light of Durin’s Day will shine upon the key-hole.”

-J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

I’ve always loved the role that the thrush plays in the Hobbit, and I’ve been looking for a good way to incorporate all the related symbolism into one art piece. When the movies came out, the portrayal of the dwarf Dwalin as a tough, tattooed badass got me wondering what other tattoos he might have. If I were him, the thrush would be top of my list.

If you’d like to see this on a shirt, please vote for it over at Threadless. Thanks!
