Question about Dorn's Deep (spoilers)

    Hello everyone. Recently I've been poking around IWD material, from stuff about the game to the Spine of the World region in P&P. Yesterday, while browsing the net, I read something about Dorn's Deep which I have a hard time rebembering.

    The (very sparse) page about Dorn's Deep on the Forgotten Realms Fandom wiki states something along the lines of there being "a statue of an elf and a dwarf sitting on a double throne" deep within the structure.

    Now... It's been a while since I've played IWD. I could go back and play it (I still have the original version) but right now it's installed on an out of comission laptop, and it's been years since I lost track of the box and the manual. I remember that the drow merchant Nym was responsible for the dwarven weapons' theft, and I remember the elf mage Larrel from the Severed Hand (I also assume Dorn's Deep was named after a dwarf named Dorn? A king, perhaps?). But, I really don't remember this double throne or any kind of statue alluding to this.

    Was there any thing like that in the game, like physically, or was it just some piece or lore somewhere? Here's hoping anyone here can help me figuring this one out. Thanks :)

    The statue can be clicked for some context info which says "A large monument with giant carvings of an elf and a dwarf as the centerpiece. An inscription between the two reads "Through unity we Persevere."

    Ah, thank you both! :D So there really was a statue of Larrel and (I assume) Dorn. I had totally forgotten about this. Once again, my thanks :)
