Son of Numenor by LuthienThye Son of Numenor by LuthienThye
It is said that the descendents of Numenor possess the gift of longevity. It was bestowed to them by the Valar, the Elder Elves who live in the Ancient West. By the Grace of the Valar, the line of Elros was also given the privilege as the race who would rule the Kingdom of Men. However, in time, the Numenoreans became arrogant and desired immortality, so they called for a rebellion against the Valar. That action led to the downfall of Numenor and the King of Men were exiled to Middle Earth. As time passed, the race of the Kings faded into legend or so it was thought.

This is a mixed media handbound journal. Inspired by the tales of the Kings of Men, the centerpiece is an assemblage of several pieces of metal filigrees, washers and clock gears. The vine-like tendrils are fully hand-sculpted using epoxy clay. On top of this metal centerpiece, sits a rustic piece of veined blue Picasso Jasper, symbolizing the last surviving royal bloodline of Numenor. He is Aragorn, son of Arathorn, who would in time ascend to his rightful place on throne of the White City of Gondor.

The page marker is made up of a brass chain and ends with a piece of pyrite bead and brass finding. The artwork is then aged and distressed. The covers are finished with several coats of varnish.
