2021 marks the 20th anniversary of The Fellowship of the Ring, the first film release in the epic The Lord of the Rings trilogy. One of modern cinema’s greatest achievements, the film was nominated for 13 Academy Awards.
Celebrating the anniversary, a set of six stamps and miniature sheets features key moments from the film with original paintings by award-winning Wellington artist Sacha Lees. Lees worked as a designer and sculptor on the films and designed New Zealand Post’s The Fellowship of the Ring stamps in 2001.
