meilian's forest by breathing2004 meilian's forest by breathing2004
There Melian came, the Lady grey,
and dark and long her tresses lay,
beneath her silver girdle seat
and down unto her silver feet.
She is a Maia of the race of the Ainur, akin to Yavanna. Before the First Age, in the Years of the Trees, she left the gardens of Lórien and went to Middle-earth, and there she fell in love with the Elven-king Elu Thingol, King Greymantle, and with him ruled the kingdom of Doriath. She had a child with Thingol, a daughter named Lúthien, said to be the fairest and most beautiful of all the Children of Ilúvatar. Melian's line of descent is the half-elven and Kings of Númenor.

Thingol encountered Melian in the woods of Nan Elmoth and fell under Melian's enchantment of love for long, long years. As a result of his absence a portion of his followers stayed behind to search for him; the rest continued on to Valinor.Melian and Thingol thereafter founded the kingdom of Doriath in Middle-earth. Their daughter Lúthien Tinúviel married the Man Beren. As a result Melian's Maian blood passed to both Elves and Men.

Someone needs to build a Cathedral of St. Tolkien so that you can make the stained-glass windows. These are incredible.

I used this in a post on The Silmarillion: truemyths.org/2014/12/19/silma…

Hope that's cool! Please keep doing what you do, this is so incredible!

Hi! I'm interested in buying this picture in high resolution - I'd like to make a stained glass in my flat. What is the price for this work in best possible quality?

I think, Tolkien himself would have liked your works - they are awesome in their forms and colours.

Wonderful rendition of one of the most underrated tragic figures in the Silmarillion, IMO. (Well, she DID lose both her husband and her daughter in two different ways, and she could not really die either because of the nature of her lineage.)
