First Age Week: Art

Links:
– (Featured) really cool depiction of Aulë and Yavanna, by KisTithen. Yavanna created the Two Trees; Aulë was her husband who we’ll read about Aulë eventually (he created Dwarves).
Compilation of art by Righon. Tons of characters (mostly elves) from the first age, illustrated beautifully.
The Curse of Mandos, by Belegilgalad. This was referred to in AppA, when Tolkien says “Against the will of the Valar Fëanor forsook the Blessed Realm and went in exile to Middle-Earth.” Mandos appeared as the elves were leaving to warn them of the grief and sorrow that would come of returning to Middle Earth.
