    'Listen! They are coming this way,' said Frodo. 'We have only to wait.' The singing drew nearer. One clear voice rose now above the others. It was singing in the fair elven-tongue, of which Frodo knew only a little, and the others knew nothing. Yet the sound blending with the melody seemed to shape itself in their thought into words which they only partly understood. This was the song as Frodo heard it:

    Snow-white! Snow-white! O Lady clear!

    O Queen beyond the Western Seas!

    O Light to us that wander here

    Amid the world of woven trees!

    Gilthoniel! O Elbereth!

    Clear are thy eyes and bright thy breath!

    Snow-white! Snow-white! We sing to thee

    In a far land beyond the Sea.

    O stars that in the Sunless Year

    With shining hand by her were sawn,

    In windy fields now bright and clear

    We see your silver blossom blown!

    O Elbereth! Gilthoniel!

    We still remember, we who dwell

    In this far land beneath the trees,

    Thy starlight on the Western Seas.

    The song ended. 'These are High Elves! They spoke the name of Elbereth!' said Frodo in amazement, 'Few of that fairest folk are ever seen in the Shire. Not many now remain in Middle-earth, east of the Great Sea. This is indeed a strange chance!'

Well done, it is an excellent stylized depiction of Haldir's wandering company in their pleasantly mysterious manner.

This is by far one of my favorite depictions of Tolkien's elves.

So beautiful! Really breathtaking. It's different that your other Lord of the Rings pieces, and the different composition really emphasises the procession into the west! Wow, this is so incredible...

This is GORGEOUS. It's like your usual stained-glass style mixed with a woodblock print.
