Lothlorien by Gwillieth Lothlorien by Gwillieth

 " Lothlórien "

     
   120 x 60 cm
Acrylic on Canvas

Inscriptions above and below painting are part of "Gandalf`s song of Lorien" :
" In Dwimordene, in Lórien
Seldom have walked the feet of Men,
Few mortal eyes have seen the light
That lies there ever, long and bright.
"
and are written  in Tolkien`s elvish alphabet , Tengwar Annatar .
This is the full song :


Gandalf's Song of Lórien


In Dwimordene, in Lórien
Seldom have walked the feet of Men,
Few mortal eyes have seen the light
That lies there ever, long and bright.
Galadriel! Galadriel!
Clear is the water of your well;
White is the stasr in your white hand;
Unmarred, unstained is leaf and land
In Dwimordene, in Lórien
More fair than thoughts of Mortal Men.




In J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium, Lothlórien is the fairest forest realm of the Elves remaining in Middle-earth during the Third Age.The realm plays an important part in The Lord of the Rings as the Elven centre of resistance against Sauron and is a symbol for the Elves' aesthetics of preservation which provides a space 'out of time' for the characters who both live and visit there. With Lothlórien, Tolkien reconciles otherwise conflicting ideas regarding time-distortion in Elfland from various traditional sources such as Thomas the Rhymer (13th/14th century) and the Danish folk-play Elverhøj (1828).

I love this!  It is so beautiful. 
I'm also impressed at the acrylic work (I find it a particularly difficult medium) 
I also love your descriptions and explanations below, informative.
