The design actually replicates the entrance to the Mines of Moria – a vast underground complex that features in fantasy writer JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings series. Moria is in fact more than a mine: it makes up an entire dwarven kingdom, extending for hundreds of miles under the Misty Mountains, with a labyrinth of tunnels, shafts and subterranean halls.

According to Tolkien’s complex mythology, the dwarven kingdom’s history began before the Sun and Moon were created. Durin, according to Tolkien, was the first of the “Fathers of the Dwarves,” and he led his clan to a lake surrounded by mountains and waterfalls, which he named “Kheled-zâram.”
