From Designer Warren Mahy says the Naked Mole Rat was the inspiration for this piece of Kongcept artwork. Warren created it after talking to Peter Jackson about creature possibilities. He explains further: "This is another “Terror from the air” beastie. Peter talked about liking the idea of a simian like creature with wings… hence the addition of the prehensile tail and the “hands” This particular design was also inspired by the world’s most unloved rodent.. The naked mole rat. I reckon it gets a bad rap. Ugly is great design!" [More]
