Our interpretation of the door to the Mines of Moria represents the magical moment when Gandalf speaks the Sindarin word for 'Friend' (Mellon). After generations of lying closed to the world, the gateway is opened to the travellers of the Fellowship in the Third Age.
The Elvish inscription above the doors is faithfully reproduced, reading:
"The Doors of Durin, Lord of Moria. Speak, friend, and enter. I, Narvi, made them. Celebrimbor of Hollin drew these signs."
