Earendil and Elwing silk scarve by breathing2004
Earendil and Elwing silk scarve

Eärendil means 'Lover of the Sea' in Tolkien's invented language of Quenya. However, Tolkien borrowed the name from Old English literature. Tolkien states (Letters, 297) that the name comes from Anglo-Saxon éarendel. He was struck by its "great beauty" c. 1913, which he perceived as

entirely coherent with the normal style of A-S, but euphonic to a peculiar degree in that pleasing but not 'delectable' language.

There is a poem by Tolkien dated to 1914 entitled "The Voyage of Eärendel the Evening Star" (published in The Book of Lost Tales 2 267–269). Tolkien was also aware of the name's Germanic cognates (Old Norse AurvandillLombardic Auriwandalo), and the question why the Anglo-Saxon one rather than the Lombardic or Proto-Germanic form should be taken up in the mythology is alluded to in The Notion Club Papers. The Old Norse together with the Anglo-Saxon evidence point to an astronomical myth, the name referring to a star, or a group of stars, and the Anglo-Saxon in particular points to the morning staras the herald of the rising Sun (in Crist Christianized to refer to John the Baptist).

Tolkien was particularly inspired by the lines in the Crist written by Cynewulf:[1]

éala éarendel engla beorhtast / ofer middangeard monnum sended"Hail Earendel, brightest of angels, over Middle-earth to men sent"

which can be taken as the inspiration not only for the role of Eärendil in Tolkien's work, but also for the term Middle-earth (translating Middangeard) for the inhabitable lands (c.f. Midgard).

The first line is paralleled by Frodo Baggins' exclamation in The Two Towers (the line appears in The Return of the King in the Peter Jackson films), Aiya Eärendil Elenion Ancalima! which is Quenya, and translates to "Hail Eärendil, brightest of stars!" Frodo's exclamation was in reference to the 'Star-glass' he carried, which contained the light of Eärendil's star, the Silmaril.

《荣耀之城》Untitled by breathing2004 Untitled by breathing2004 Untitled by breathing2004 Untitled by breathing2004  

     

    图尔从高处往下望著美丽的俏拉登平原,觉得它彷佛是摆在环抱群山中的绿宝石一般;然後他望见了远处平原中央高高的岩石山丘葛威瑞斯,以及建在其上伟大的贡多林城。那城有七个名字,所有住在中土大陆的精灵所作的歌谣中,以它的声名与荣耀最丰隆浩大。在艾克希里昂的吩咐下,大门的高塔上吹起了响亮的号角,号声在群山之间回荡;随即从远方传来清晰的回应号声,从贡多林城的白墙上响起,随著黎明在平原上回荡。    

    ————《精灵宝钻》

    精灵宝钻里的中土世界是精灵的故乡,人类刚刚觉醒的时候,精灵已经拥有了强大的文明,也深受诸神喜爱,他们有的去过西方极乐之地,接受神明的指点,学到高深知识后重返中土,有的则留在中土按他们的心意建造美丽的城市,最终留下了很多著名的城市,有群山环抱的刚多林,有藏匿在美丽安环带中的千窟之城明霞国斯,还有位于深山有天堑河流保护的多瑞亚斯,还有受到海神保护的船民之城灰港,以及人类建立的王国努曼诺尔,他们都向往着远在不死之地的西方的维诺林——双圣树故乡。然而转眼就算拥有不朽生命的精灵也想不到,这些伟大城市都毁灭殆尽,只留片片废墟空留后人唏嘘,感叹造物弄人。

I have been working as an archi tacture designer since my graduation, I work as a freelancer illustrator and designer in spare time.I searched inspritions from movies and games respectively and was invited to showcase my artworks on the Blizzard official website for several times as the most recognized inoffical illustrator related to World of Warcraft. I also attended the Blizzard Carnival in 2011 with invitation.
In recent years, I have been immersed in creations of the glass painting style artworks among which the recreation of Lord of the Rings series won me many honors. My first contact to the trilogy was when the movie directed by Peter Jackson was on the show in 2002, I read the Lord of the Rings and the Hobits books after I saw the movie. I doodled some pictures for fun, much to the visual effect of the movie than to substantial appreciation for the masterpiece itself. I gained a more profound understanding though extensive reading later, now I would read the novel every 2 years, whenever I read it I will forget time passing and keep reading thoughout the whole night.
Then I had a chance to know the glass painting style and felt it must be great If I adopt this style to tell a story because it was endowed with a sense of religious magnificence yet the plot is usually unsophisticated, with reasonable arrange of the images, a chapter from the book could be represented in a single picture.
It happened that the Deviantart website was hosting an online Lord of the Rings fan art challenge and an artwork of mine Rest in Gildor's Forest was positively approved, then I started to create the Lord of the Rings series.
Later my artworks Roselolin’s Gift and The Grieve Over A Twilight Star received favorable comments and being posted on international websites,eventually they were selected into the One Ring exhibition in Los Angeles in 2013.
