Elu Thingol by BohemianWeasel Elu Thingol by BohemianWeasel

"In Beleriand, King Thingol upon his throne was as the lords of the Maiar whose power is at rest,
 whose joy is as an air that they breathe in all their days,
 whose thought flows in a tide untroubled from the heights to the deeps."
 JRR Tolkien, The Silmarillion

Thingol throned in his grand and hidden underground kingdom. The pillars were said to be sculpted like great beech trees, with golden lamps hung from all their branches.
In the frame, either side of him, are symbols based on those for Melian (his wife) and Luthien (his daughter), and above him his doom: the 'Nauglamir' necklace with a Silmaril in the middle.

I think Thingol is the most fabulous elf, he survived so long in the war with Morgoth...
I cried when the dwarves killed him, it was a very stupid death for a character like this :(

Whoa he looks so majestic :D
I like the choice of colour, red is like the always obvious option everyone choose for royal themes, but gold here looks so good!

I LOVE IT!!! The close up was great, but this is...words cannot describe how awesome this is. He looks so regal, sitting there, looking down on us. Eeee! I'm favoriting this. And the symbols of his wife, daughter, and doom are amazing.
