Beautiful. I think Tolkien himself would have liked this.

The framing Ouroboros aspects of this triptych gives clue to the deeping meaning of this tale in regards to the LotR overstory.

So beautiful and incredibly detailed art :) I would like to see these artworks as actual covers for Tolkien's works :)

The Tale of Beren and Luthien is hands down my favorite story in The Silmarillion. This painting really dose the story justice tenfold. Love this art work style. It really invokes this mythical and fairy tale feel of the story.

It's so beautiful.
You know, when Tolkien created the work, his wife Edith was the inspiration for Luthien, particularly in the meeting between the man and elf. The couple were walking into the woods when Tolkein was on medical leave during WWI, and when she danced for him in a hemlock-filled grove, that was the creation that would start the world and stories of Middle-earth. When she died, he had "Luthien" engraved under her name. When Tolkein died two years later, he was buried next to her, and the name "Beren" was engraved under his name, so Beren would forever be reunited with his beloved Luthien.
That, right there, is true love.

you know, on J.R.R. Tokien's tombstone it says Beren, and on his wife's tombstone it reads Luthien, which I think is incredibly romantic and moving
