G-i-P Report: Easterling letters in The Hobbit?

The German fan site Herr-der-Ringe-Film has posted new pictures from The Hobbit movies that are currently on display at the Frankfurt Book Fair. The most mysterious one is the picture above. It contains a „wheel of fortune” (?) machine with the signs (numbers?) which are similar to the undeciphered writing system of the Easterling (see here – and the Easterling letters below) in the LotR movies. Can it be the decoration connected with Necromancer, Dol Guldur and the tribes of the East? It is not Tolkienian one (though it may resemble Rúmilian letters sarati).

But we suppose the picture in fact doesn’t show the item from The Hobbit movies. And what do you think?

G-i-P stands for Gwaith-i-Phethain, ‘The Fellowship of the Word-smiths’ or the linguistic website devoted to post-Tolkienian constructions in the “reconstructed” languages of Middle-earth [link].

Herr-der-ringe posted an update about that altar set. It has been identified as coming from an unrelated Schleich set.

Dark Jackal, thank you for this information. Ufff, because it really didn’t fit Middle-earth.
